Vondelpark – Outro 4 Ariel
Vondelpark is a band we’ve been waiting patiently for here at Lower Frequencies. They first graced us with 2010’s Sauna EP that featured the critically acclaimed “California Analog Dream”. They followed that up with another exceptional EP in 2011, but since then it’s been the waiting game like we’ve experienced so many times before. That all changed last Tuesday with the release of their debut LP Seabed — and it’s better than I could have anticipated. I like to think of Vondelpark as a cross between James Blake, How To Dress Well, and occasionally Bonobo. I realize those are some bold comparisons, but after hearing a dreamy RnB ballad like “Outro 4 Ariel” you’ll realize rather quickly why we think the sky’s the limit for Vondelpark.
