Low Line Relay "Near"

Earlier this summer, London's Low Line Relay (a.k.a. Leo O'Callaghan) released his In The Gutter EP via 4Lux, and now he has returned with a new track lifted off of his new Fingerprints 12" for Cambrian Line. Although he's a London resident, Callaghan's woozy track "Near" resonates with the elements of the work from certain LA locals—for instance, Teebs and Shlohmo could easily use the florid guitar riff for their own productions. From there, the song breezes into a heavily jazz-influenced, dowtempo medley peppered with a gibberish vocal sample and a walking bassline. The creeping synth melody that hovers in the mix recalls the blissed-out work of artists like Thundercat, perhaps at a slower pace. You can watch a video for "Happiness," another cut from Low Line Relay's new EP, after the jump.
