For Pat Grossi of Active Child, the last two years have been nothing short of enriching. Musically, Pat has worked within and appropriated a number of styles into his sound, from his early days singing with that heavenly voice as a choir boy to his more recent forays into laptop-assisted indie-pop made in his bedroom, best exemplified on 2010's acclaimed Curtis Lane EP. His sound is so wide-ranging that he has found himself touring with many notable acts of differing genres, including dubstep producer James Blake, dreamy synth-pop of School of Seven Bells, and the indie-rock bands White Lies and White Rabbits.
Nothing quite prepares you for the leap that Pat has taken with his debut album, You Are All I See, out on August 23rd via Vagrant records. Recently, he has expanded his sonic ambitions and turned the studio into an instrument for a record that sounds cosmically huge and yet intimate all the same.
Last year, Tri Angle introduced the world to BALAM ACAB (aka Alec Koone), and his otherworldly, secretive sound of submerged bass and phantom vocal harmonies, with the release of his universally acclaimed debut EP 'See Birds'. Tri Angle is now very excited to announce the release of BALAM ACAB's debut album, WANDER / WONDER, which will be available worldwide on September 6th, 2011 on CD, LP, and digitally. It was written and produced by Alec Koone and mixed by Alec Koone and Sam Haar (member of Blondes). NPR recently premiered the second single off the album entitled "Apart". You can listen to the NPR stream online or via Tri Angle's Soundcloud. The first single "Oh, Why" is also available for download online.
