This week's download comes from experimental, pop group Hundred Waters. Hundred Waters recently released their sophomore album The Moon Rang Like A Bell on Skrillex's label OWSLA. Pitchfork named the album 'Best New Music' with a score of 8.3 out of 10.
“Digital folk” was the term used in a review of their self-titled debut, and that captures it as well as anything: music that is both earthy and disembodied, with humans and electronics joining at some blissful halfway point. Hundred Waters thrive in the place where post-rock meets freak folk, and sing-song melodies are twisted into strange shapes by circuitry. -Mark Richardson, Pitchfork
