Brass, woodwinds, organs and piano mix with haunting melodies and eerie guitar lines on California multi-instrumentalist Maston's upcoming LP Shadows, out via Trouble in Mind on February 12.
Pitchfork premieres the first track from Shadows, "Young Hearts" today: On "Young Hearts," he seamlessly moves from spooky organ jabs to sweet harpsichord melodies while singing an unsettling love song. Throughout the track, he's constantly altering dozens of layers-- changing volumes, textures, and overall moods to craft an erratic, unpredictable composition with a sentimental pop song at its core.
For more about Maston, find him on Facebook, BandCamp and at Trouble in Mind.
