ALTA – Stay Awhile by Chris

Shaping up to be the release of the year, you better believe I’m tagging Alta‘s Stay Awhile debut BRILLIANT (the lucky 7th tag earned this year).

From the seductive slowness of the eponymous opener Stay Awhile to the cheeky musac samples in Elevator, the overall progression of the record effortlessly moves from dreamy sample-heavy blues-ballads to solid trip-hop sounds in Next and Bees.

The most impressive element of Alta‘s sound is the way beatmaker Julius’ sample-heavy beats marry with vocalist Hannah’s organic soulful voice to create a fresh-yet-familiar vibe within the tracks. The only thing I dislike about this album is that when I listen to it on my iTunes, Alta Mira by Björk always comes on once it’s over and that song drives me fucking nuts; but, assuming you won’t have the same problem, I highly recommend you take the time to give this release a download.
