Artist Hunter Mack and musican Graham Hill (drummer-Beach House) have collaborated on this stunning artfully packaged 7”. From a packaging standpoint this opaque orange 7” housed in a carefully designed abstract jacket is near perfection and then there’s the music…The A-Side “Why Party?” is layered dreamy synth pop at its best. Ambient electronics mix with hazy vocals on this slow jam. The soundscapes manage to stay modern while maintaining their retro cool. The B-Side “The Comedown” is my favorite of the two tracks with its catchy pop tune sensibilities and pulsing synth appregios. The backing vocals swirl around the mix effortlessly. This 7” from top to bottom is a must have.
