Thomas Mullarney and Jacob Gossett, aka Brooklyn duo Beacon, introduced themselves to the world with the No Body and For Now EPs. The EPs were united by minimalist, R&B-influenced instrumentation, and also by a lyrical theme, with both serving as meditations on the darkness that underpins the most intense of human emotions: love. Both developing and consolidating these ideas, the duo’s debut full length The Ways We Separate sees its official release today.
Meanwhile, there are still a few copies left of The Ways We Separate’s deluxe version, TWWS, which features a sugar mold from Fernando Mastrangelo that cradles the colored vinyl version of the LP inside.
Tycho and Thievery Corporation have been fans of each other’s material for a while now. It makes sense that the two would come together for a split co-release on Ghostly International and Thievery’s own ESL Music label. Side A sees Tycho takes Thievery’s “Fragments,” originally released on 2011’s Culture of Fear, on a synth swirl ride with shades of guitar riffs that create a candy cane-like visual experience. Meanwhile, Rob Garza of Thievery fame grabs the mellow “Ascension,” taken from 2011’s Dive, and makes a slightly dark dance track with hand claps.
