Earlier this month, Pastel Voids released Aspirations For Young Xol, the sophomore album from Santiago Salazar.

In the creation of the album, Salazar pulled inspirations directly from his life: "personal experiences ranging from the growth of his son into adulthood to memories of growing up in Bassett California, a struggling Latino suburb outside of Los Angeles." Across the 10 cuts on the album, Salazar draws an autobiographical arc, from the feel-good grooves of the title track, which is dedicated to his son, to the James Stinson tribute "Ode To Stinson" and "Orange Blossom," a faux soundtrack to the gang-filled street he grew up on.

In support of the LP, Salazar and Pastel Voids have offered up "Bloodline," a machine-driven house cut, as today's XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below.

You can pick up the full album on limited-edition cassette, CD, and digitally here.
