Pretty Lights – A Color Map of the Sun

If you’re reading this is probably safe to say that you already have this download, and most likely you’ve listened to it on repeat.  Its incredible to see what an independent artist can do with a vision and an arsenal of musicians and vintage equipment.  Its even more stunning to record this entire vision to vinyl and then produce it, knowing that he must have had nearly the entire album and feeling engrained to his mind, before he ever touched the samples.  To have such vision of completed tracks is true mastery of the craft, and a statement that has pushed the standard of electronic musicianship to a reach far beyond what anyone with a simple laptop could achieve.
