Boomkat Product Review:
Taking a second out from his Asura project, LA's Ryan York delivers an album of serenely psyched pop-tronica for Leaving Records. While that other project is weighted with smudged HipHop beats, 'Zipperlegs' is inflated with an expanding head-full of pop melodies and dreamily drifting vocals, drones and ferric textures. The title track is like a more lo-fi and stranger Panda Bear, while the sprightly percussion of 'Please' comes off like something from Toro Y Moi's first album and 'All Our Favourite Colors' could almost have come from the Altar Eagle LP. Meanwhile, 'Land Ecstacy' enters lushly harmonised ambient zones redolent of Tim Hecker and 'High Life' sounds like How To Dress Well's Tom Krell had been listening to Arvo Pärt instead of R Kelly. Very sweet stuff, indeed.
