Considering Friday is a good day to get to happy hour early, no harm in starting the day with a little Bushmills, right? Although before you get your shot glasses ready, we suggest a sip of "Bushmills," this intoxicating track from Long Beach-by-way-of-Texas artist Yppah. Having amassed a legion of loyal fans with his signature blend of electronic, psychedelic and rock influences, Yppah (pronounced "yip-ah") is back with perhaps his most intimate work to date. Tiny Pause, due for release on Counter Records October 16, finds the LBC beatsmith adopting an enormous technical shift in his writing process, moving away from largely software-based production and live instrumentation to modular synthesizers and samplers. Inspired in large part by 8mm footage and self-described "creepy/beautiful" archived film found on the internet, he draws on the same palette of the living landscape, human memory and emotive warmth found in his prior work and magnifies it, echoing the sounds of Tycho, Baths and Boards of Canada.
