South American producer Arca has shared with us this cut, a soaring and serene track that will serve as the coda to his forthcoming album, Stretch 2 (artwork above). The record follows the free Stretch 1 EP, which, you may recall, caught our attention with this creepy video, not to mention its (lack of) cost. "Manners" is radically different from the dark, beat-driven productions we've previously posted by the producer, and instead employs a laid-back rhythm with melodies and textures that sound practically new age. After the jump, you can take a look at the tracklisting for Stretch 2, which comes out through UNO on August 6.
