The California production duo Classixx have perfected their own take on dance music, one that’s light and clean and shimmering and, at its best, just stunningly gorgeous. The duo’s 2013 album Hanging Gardens really snuck up on me, and now they’ve announced plans to follow it up with a new one called Faraway Reach, as Pitchfork points out. We’ve already heard a couple of its songs: The album opener “Grecian Summer” and the great T-Pain collab “Whatever I Want.” The LP will also feature tracks with people Passion Pit and Holy Ghost!’s Alex Frankel, as well as bedroom-soul traveler How To Dress Well. “Just Let Go,” the How To Dress Well collab, is one of those tracks that makes me wish everyone involved would just form a new group and keep making tracks just like it. Listen to it and check out the Faraway Reach tracklist below.
