Laurel Halo "Aquifer"

Laurel Halo's second release for the prolific Hippos in Tanks imprint is another EP, this one being a six-song offering called Hour Logic. That record's opening track is the frenetic "Aquifer," which balances its churning, hot-footed rhythms with a densely swirling ambiance and other glossy sound effects that bring to mind the proto-CGI landscapes of the early '90s (much like this other jam from her forthcoming NNA Tapes cassette). Apparently, these sounds are "an ode to time leaping, designed to aid in moments of brain traffic and physical transit," but they'd probably be equally helpful during the time spent traversing the 3-D planes of your favorite vintage computer games, too. And even though Halo's lovely voice fails (yet again) to make an appearance on this particular production, we're nonetheless excited to hear what the rest of her new EP holds when it drops on June 21. You can check out the artwork and tracklist for the Hour Logic EP while you wait for that day, below. (via Altered Zones)
