Stream the New Small Black Album
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Since their self-titled EP skyrocketed to chillwave fame last year, New York's Small Black has been somewhat sparse with its output of new material, only serving to build the anticipation for the group's debut full length, New Chain. Released earlier this week on Jagjaguwar, the 10-track LP finds the four-piece expanding its production techniques and songwriting to new regions and cementing its place atop the chillwave mountain. But don't take our word for it, the good people at Jagjaguwar have made the whole album available to stream for one week from their Soundcloud account. If you have dimmable lights somewhere nearby, we suggest making use of them before pressing play; if not, perhaps closing your eyes will do.
