Album Review

Along with moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles after the release of their self-titled 2008 record, the duo of Mary Pearson and Rob Barber made some pretty drastic alterations to their sound. The early recordings and their album were built around hypnotic loops made from percussion instruments, found sound, and household items that were warped into non-recognizable sounds. It made for a childlike and quite often magical sound that was made even better by Pearson’s guileless vocals. High Places vs. Mankind is still built on loops and odd sounds, but the textures are sparser and the instruments are more traditional-sounding. The drums usually sound like drums, there are keyboards, and most importantly, they introduce guitars into the mix. It makes for a more identifiably "indie rock" listening experience.

Awesome as usual, do yourself a FLAVOR and just buy it...yes a FLAVOR


beautiful. but the itunes reveiw is of their self titled debut. not this album. oops.

Love this album!

High Places create genius music. Genius, unfettered music The glitch beats are truly 'gasmic. This album is alot darker and quieter as a whole, which I think is a good change from the first album. And wow..Constant Winter.. is really reallllllllllly good. Like the namesake suggests, perfect with chemicals. Mind-altering chemicals. Lots of 'em.

So. Yeah. Enjoy!

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

One of many boy/girl indie electro duos formed in 2006, Rob Barber and Mary Pearson of Brooklyn's High Places approach recording with creative abandon, experimenting with offbeat production techniques like random microphone positioning, pitch shifting, delays, and saturated blankets of reverb to create danceable layers of sound. Playful and peppy, their beats incorporate sparse and hypnotic tribal rhythms, with lyrics that incorporate unusually innocent topics like love letters to Martians and apologies...
