Alias Announces New LP for Anticon, Drops Free EP
- Words: James Eaton
Admittedly, it has been quite some time since we last heard from veteran beatmaker Alias—almost three years, actually, when he delivered his XLR8R podcast ahead of his 2011 LP Fever Dream—but the artist born Brendon Whitney has officially returned, bringing news of his next full-length effort for Anticon and giving away an EP of all new productions. First things first: On May 27, Alias will release his ninth album, Pitch Black Prism, the full details of which we hope to have sooner than later. But before then, the East Coast artist has sent over the four brand-new tracks on his Indiiggo EP to give us an idea of his current musical headspace, as the title track is also Pitch Black Prism's lead single. Whitney appears to be working with densely layered electronic beats for the most part, lacing his productions with a mangled, forward-looking pop sensibility. The entirety of Alias' Indiiggo EP can be streamed and downloaded for free below, ahead of the arrival of Pitch Black Prism.
