Stream Shlohmo’s ‘Dark Red’ LP

blame it on Shake March 31, 2015

As a follow-up to 2011’s Bad Vibes, Shlohmo – the Los Angeles producer behind Jeremih’s incredible No More EP – will release his sophomore album, Dark Red, on April 7th. Led by previous singles “Buried” and “Emerge From Smoke,” the 11-track offering is Shlohmo’s dirtiest work yet.

The album is an uncanny marriage of his ever-evolving, richly textured sound with shades of 90s IDM, R&B, cassette-tape Jungle, and, in an unexpected turn, sludge metal. “It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record,” he says, “or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx.”

Take an early listen via NY Times’ Press Play and head to iTunes to pre-order before it’s April 7th release.
