"Collaborative release by Stones Throw and Leaving Records. Leaving Records is one of Los Angeles' best, a hand-curated cassette label whose international reach belies its boutique status and DIY style. Naturally, Dual Form reflects the brightly burning light guiding Leaving's doings: an elevated level of experimentation combined with the twinning beliefs that art is sacred and music is magic. In a way, avant chanteuse Julia Holter provides this set's mantra with her haunting cover of Arthur Russell's 'You and Me Both' when she sings, 'Want to keep on doing.' To that end, Anticon founder Odd Nosdam delivers the booming but elegiac 'Sisters,' Postal Service electrician Dntel gets playful with 'Windy Windy,' psychedelic blueser Sun Araw discovers transcendence for 'Right Off,' and Serengeti teams with Matthewdavid for the far-out rap of 'Into the Night.' Dual Form could've easily been a retrospective of Leaving Records' 'greatest hits,' but that'd be a disingenuous introduction to a label that's always looking forward. All of the tracks on the album are new, original recordings. If the names gathered here look unfamiliar, it'd be a good time to start studying them." Housed in a gatefold sleeve with digital download card.
