Shlohmo – Buried

shlohmo-dark-red-album

On April 7, Los Angeles producer Shlohmo, aka Henry Laufer, will release his sophomore album Dark Red. The 11-track album follows his 2011 effort Bad Vibes and acts as his first LP for True Panther Records.

True Panther describe the record as “an uncanny marriage of his ever-evolving, richly textured sound with shades of ’90s IDM, R&B, cassette-tape Jungle, and, in an unexpected turn, sludge metal.”

Dark Red drops April 7 via True Panther/WeDidIt. Listen to his murky new cut Buried down below.
