Stream the New Collaborative Album from Grenier and Archie Pelago
- Words: Derek Kaneko
Grenier Meets Archie Pelago, the appropriately titled collaborative LP from prolific Brooklyn three-piece Archie Pelago and Los Angeles-based instrumentalist/producer/DJ Grenier, is now available to stream in full via XLR8R.
Out today via Melodic, this ambitious album finds the four artists pooling all their instrumental talents and production capabilities together. As a result, Grenier Meets Archie Pelago is a careful blend of organic and mechanical sounds—a meticulously crafted and lush batch of mindfully detailed tracks. Voluminous orchestral strings and manipulated saxaphone layers are meshed together with computerized drum sounds and glistening synths, creating bold compositions that balance brainy dance music with the warmth of analog instrumentation. All 13 tracks of Grenier Meets Archie Pelago can be streamed in full below.
