Album Review: Pretty Lights’ ‘A Color Map of the Sun’


All the tracks are on point, but here are some of the standouts: [soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/99357175″ params=”” width=” 100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] “Everything gets older with time, but the world is spinning slower in my mind…” these lyrics and the funky sax riffs won’t stop swirling around in my head.

Featuring Talib Kweli, this is just a straight up feel good track with a hyphy little dub drop thrown in for fun. [soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/99357177″ params=”” width=” 100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

This is a perfect example of the chillin’, organic vibe of the new album. I could listen to this morning, day and night. [soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/99357183″ params=”” width=” 100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

I can’t get enough of the techno vibe of this track. So simple, but so jammin’.

All in all, the album speaks volumes on the direction that PLM is going and I couldn’t be more stoked on it. It’s refreshing to see that even an artist that relies so heavily on electronic production can create an album made solely from live instruments, but still keeps that signature funky trip-hop PL vibe.
