While we await a new full-length LP from our resident street poet, graphic artist and sonic nomad Alleyes Manifest, he's tiding us over with a free project/mix/re-hash selection of audible treats called "Vulgar Happiness". Paying tribute to some of his current favorite musicians like Julian Malone and Holy Other, we also get a few exclusive original productions by Immortal Beats and our own Capo. Engineered by Alleyes, Mastered by Ryan Wordsmith. Listen to the project in a full stream below and download for free:
From last years Paces Lift EP "Themes For A Deja Vu". Cinematographer Hannah Radcliff filmed and edited the beautiful footage we see in Basil's Theme over the course of a few months in multiple state parks. The time lapse of ominous clouds compliment Paces rapid fire drums while the tracking shots pair nicely with the vocal "humming" and flamenco guitar samples, offering us a slightly transcendent vibe. Listen to the rest of the Deja Vu EP here.
Director, Cinematography: Hannah Radcliff hannahradcliff.com
Shot on location in Castlewood State Park, Pickle Spring State Park, Chain of Rocks Bridge, Hahn State Park, Columbia Bottom Confluence State Park, Pere Marquette State Park, and Cliff Cave State Park.
