Video: Balam Acab - "Welcome"

Here is the new video from Balam Acab, the project of 20-year-old Pennsylvanian Alec Koone for the track “Welcome” off  of his new LP Wander/Wonder released this week on Tri Angle Records(Clams Casino, Holy Other). If you aren’t familiar with his sound there is a classical feel with samples sounding like they are pulled from recordings of hymns. Accentuating the "chamber dub" qualities are samples of orchestral sections and nylon string guitar strategically and surgically placed in pockets of negative space allowing each element a moment to shine on its own only to come together as one magnificent unit by the end.
