Always interesting and always intricate, the new High Places shows why they moved to Cali– they were looking for clarity and simplicity in the face of chaos. While “On Giving Up” is less crazy than the band’s previous work, it’s still rich and detailed and… moody. Check it out.

The new album, High Places v. Mankind, is out n March 16 on Thrill Jockey.
