Balam Acab, AKA 20 year-old Alec Koone, has made available his upcoming full-length debut WANDER / WONDER for all to stream before its official release on September 6.
His tracks bear a resemblance to James Blake‘s dark-synth style however they’re much more abstract and subaquatic.

WANDER / WONDER will be available September 6 via Tri Angle Records.
