Asheville, North Carolina duo RBTS WIN, consisting of Javier Bolea and Cliff B. Worsham, formed in 2008 shortly after Bolea moved from his hometown of sun-drenched Miami to the mountain oasis of Worsham’s origins in Asheville. Their geographical backgrounds make sense when listening to Palm Sunday (Deluxe Edition), out Tuesday on their own Tidal Prism imprint. The album is awash in pop-leaning psych and swirling electronics informed by classic hip-hop sampling techniques, and etched with an imprint that is clearly informed by Since I Left You-era Avalanches. Today we are pleased to present the album stream in full.
RBTS WIN just played a Moogfest line up that featured the likes of Kraftwerk, Flying Lotus, Moderat and others, and Palm Sunday (Deluxe Edition) was recently called “a stunning mix of electronics as careless and gentle as a summer breeze” by the Line of Best Fit. The album can be puchased digitally here and is available on vinyl and CD as well.
