Pretty Lights releases new album A Color Map of the Sun for free download

Posted in Bangin, Mixtapes / Albums by nick | Tags: , , ,

The long wait is over, we finally get the next full length album from Pretty Lights, the musical project of Colorado based Derek Vincent Smith. A Color Map of the Sun takes a completely different approach to music creation. Derek went across the country working with incredible muscians recording his own collection of vinyls. He then he used his collection of vinyls to sample from to give his signature electronic twist. The result is an true work of art from start to finish. The amount of emotion and soul contained in this album is unlike any other electronic album I have heard, besides possibly Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. It is an album after listening to the full thing, I immediately find myself wanting to play it from the beginning again. This is something that will stand the test of time and gain Pretty Lights an even larger fan base.

Like all of his music he has made it the entire thing available completely for free. But he has also printed hard copies on CD and Vinyl, which are available here. He has also made it available on iTunes and Beatport.
