Founded in 2006, the eclectic record label InFiné has over one-hundred-fifty releases under its belt from a large array of well-respected artists. The next EP comes from French artist Almeeva (a.k.a Gregory Hoeppfner), a multi-instrumentalist and videographer whose forthcoming Oblite EP will be his second on the inspirited imprint. With a sound that is "oscillating between cinematic indie and modern post-trance," the five-track EP shows up as a wandering journey between hushed tones, emotional pop intonations, and sharp synth attacks. Almeeva also throws in a washed cover of the Smiths track "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" towards the end of the EP to mix things up even further.
Ahead of his Oblite EP—which drops on July 8 via InFiné—Almeeva has offered up the opening EP cut "4 Bells" as one of today's XLR8R downloads. Littered with carbonated bell sounds, the track builds with a steady grace until its smooth, pitched down underbelly rockets up into the grainy, black atmosphere.
