The indie label Mexican Summer is, right now, in the midst of celebrating its fifth anniversary. Part of that celebration is a limited-edition book called Mexican Summer: Five Years, which includes a 10″ vinyl album that has a bunch of collaborations from Mexican Summer artists. One of those collaborations is “Alive,” which brings together the unexpected pair of Christian Fennesz, the Austrian ambient-drone space cadet, and Autre Ne Veut, the Brooklyn bedroom-R&B wanderer. The two mesh uncommonly well, putting together an affecting and immersive pool of pretty sounds. Listen below.
Mexican Summer: Five Years is out next month.
