Spanish electronic post-rock outfit Balago just released a new album entitled Darder. It’s a drifting, cosmic affair, perfectly exemplified by the track “Nord,” in which astral synths parry with mysterious piano keys and a beat that almost comes out of nowhere, orbits the music, then leaves just as suddenly. This is space music with rhythmic propulsion–drone with a spine. Think Forest of Evil-era Demdike Stare mixed with The Slaves’ brand of star and shoe-gazing maneuvers. The album is out now on Foehn Records; check out “Nord” below, and stream the whole album here.
