Raygun Ballet – Big California

Raygun Ballet is back with their sophomore LP Big California. There’s a lot in here, and the album reads like a story with a real arc to it. Expect mostly downtempo songs with delicate (but deliberate) rhythms, but at times something from left field, maybe even a slow lurching funk beat. The artwork, odd selection of samples, and wide array of sounds give us the impression of a strange genius at work.

Our favorite entries are Manzanar and On Finding True Color Part II. Check out Legacy in Glass which will give you a true feel for the unique work Raygun brings to the table:
