Rob Barber and Mary Pearson, the pair who make up the NYC outer-pop duo High Places, have kept themselves abreast with the times. Their third album Original Colors is peppered with the hyper-dub sounds of the UK and balanced with dream pop undertones that make the whole album subtle as a sphinx and a bit darker than their previous outings. The album drops tomorrow via Thrill Jockey, but you can grab our exclusive first listen below.
