Premiere: YlangYlang – Like the end of the world feat. Yetis Dei

It seems that 2015 will be another year of stellar output for experimental superstar YlangYlang. The project released at least five solo records last year — including the amazing am i being overdramatic?, #23 on our top albums of the year — and seems poised to have a string of similar output for the foreseeable future.

“Like the end of the world,” a beautiful ambient piece in three parts, takes the repetition of a few simple musical phrases and underscores them with carefully slotted synth strings and dronier elements. Meanwhile, the Guillaume Vallée directed video of analog manipulations creates a trippy purple haze out of an American national parks video from the 50’s.

The song comes from the Gradients EP, co-released by Revolving Door Records and Jeunesse Cosmique, surely the first of many releases to come from YlangYlang this year.
