High Places announce Original Colors

High Places

Mary Pearson and Rob Barber, the aesthetic partnership comprising experimental pop group High Places, have been fairly quiet since 2010's High Places VS. Mankind (they're busy creating their own album artwork, having a photo blog that documents their travels, and otherwise being good at things). This break is about to end, though, with the duo's third full-length, Original Colors, due out October 11 on Thrill Jockey. It's been described as “sun-drenched” and replete with “driving bass pulses” and “synocpated dance rhythms.”

Check out the track list, below, and catch the pair at one of their sporadic dates this summer, including our 3 Nites During the Con (fall tour is in the works):
