900x "The Black Beach"
After 10 years of pounding out that sweet pop charm, the Asthmatic Kitty stable veers off the pop battlefield into "Hub City"—that's Lubbock, Texas—for its Library Catalog series, and this instrumental track from sound pioneer 900x (a.k.a. James McAllister) is just a small slice of what's to come. Cruising through the South Plains region of Northwestern Texas, McAllister tightly weaves strands of deep space ambience through a wash of padded beats and '80s synths to spruce up the serene landscape just outside the car window.
