Vermont duo Pours — Bryan Parmelee and ex-Man Man bassist Christopher Shar — practice electronic music as atmosphere, crafting billowy, beautiful songs that glide and hover. Case in point, “Boomcan,” from their forthcoming debut album. Synths rustle like lace curtains in a cool breeze, and Parmalee’s voice is distant and whispery, a shadow passing over a snowbank in the early morning. The combined effect is lovely — part elegy, part lullaby.
[Pours' self-titled debut will be released on May 14th on Section Sign Records]
