Download Balam Acab’s new track, “Oh, Why” from his forthcoming album

Pennsylvania’s Alec Koone, who records electronic music as Balam Acab, just released a new song via his Twitter page. “Oh, Why” is set be the sixth track on his forthcoming album WANDER/WONDER (due out August 29). Though it will be his first full-length, Koone has received high marks from the blog world for his sporadic releases. “Oh, Why” is spacious with a controlled use of noise and a subtle vocal sample; also present is a heavily distorted live vocal. (The artist notes that the album should be consumed at high volumes.) —Dave Simpson
