The intricate production of Balam Acab wisps you away into a dreamy fairy tell space, faded, and bizarre. On many of his tracks, including “Apart,” Balam Acab layers bright notes over slow rhythms and inserts an inaudible “chipmunk” like voice. And while the dreaminess of his music may read like bad Disney music, he adds distortions and lo-fi scratches that add a dizziness to the music that is disconcerting and interesting. At the young age of 19, Balam Acab, born Alec Koone, is a talented artist to watch.
