Baio, one of the two genuinely talented members in Vampire weekend (here’s the second), recently released his very good Sunburn EP into a world barely prepared, like a hurricane made of afro influenced house bearing down on your musical town. There are worse positions to be in, as i’m sure we can all agree, but that crazy bass playing Baio isn’t done with the solo game just yet, he’s got another couple of tracks out, albeit for free this time. They’ve been titled ‘The Silent’ and ‘New You’ and both are gorgeously textured slices of wide house, replete with the kind of earthy instrumentation that makes Vampire Weekend’s music somewhere near bearable. Both can be heard above, via Greco-Roman, where you can download them too.
