This week’s “From the Vaults” feature focuses on Viscous Solid, the debut record by Geoff White’s Aeroc (pronounced EYE-rock) project.

The paradoxical title of Aeroc’s debut makes perfect sense: sweetly oozing like a flood of maple syrup but anchored to a rock-hard jetty of rhythm, Viscous Solid is just that. Too melodic for hip-hop, too beat-heavy for ambient, Viscous Solid takes the best elements of both and carves out a bracingly beautiful, subtly jazzy corner of electronic music. It’s mid-decade Ghostly at its best—and now it’s only $5.

Buy Aeroc’s Viscous Solid for only $5 at The Ghostly Store.
