Single Serving: Planes – Mountainside

Planes is the project of Brooklyn based experimental-pop songwriter Peter Toh.  Toh and collaborator Zach Botham have prepped their debut EP entitled Mountainside for a limited edition vinyl release of 300 copies on September 21 with free digital download.  It is a stunning debut featuring a musical smorgasbord of crisp audio textures and sonic intricacies.  Opening cut “Pyramid” begins straightforwardly enough with acoustic strumming and synths, but builds into a melody that folds and unfolds upon itself as Toh’s vocals steadily alternate in and out of prominence within the mix.  The following track “New Pearl” is a laser-like and shimmering slice of hypnotic synth pop that wouldn’t sound out of place in a Washed Out or Neon Indian track-listing.  Intriguingly, each cut is varies stylistically from each preceding cut which keeps the album fresh and engaging.  Watch Planes’ website for further details on how to score one of those super limited slabs of vinyl before they sell out.
