High Places Reveal Details on Debut Album, Plot Tour
Brooklyn duo High Places (aka Mary Pearson and Robert Barber) must have some friends in some moderately-leveled, indie-approved places, as they’ve garnered a whole bunch of buzz on some limited releases and touring.

All that will change soon, as Thrill Jockey have announced the details of their debut, self-titled album. Due in September, the album will continue their hard-to-pin sound that the label attempts to explain as: "High Places songs contain a fascinating range of aural layers: bells and bird calls over a wash of ocean waves; mallets hitting mixing bowls over treated guitar and glockenspiel; Mary’s reflective vocals over Rob’s inventive and infectious beats. The result is an imaginative and spacious amalgamation of sounds with a unique almost Caribbean undertone that is as immediate as it is refreshing.”

If you can’t wait until September, Thrill Jockey will also be issuing 03/07 – 09/07, a collection of the band’s early work, on July 22. Don’t miss them on tour with No Age and Abe Vigoda this summer.
