Pretty Lights: New Album Out Today! Passing By Behind Your Eyes

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2009 by worldromper

Oh how I love Pretty Lights!

Pretty Lights aka Derek Smith blew my mind and touched my heart at the Electric Daisy Carnival and Symbiosis Gathering with his groovy, soul-pulling sound that I have heard described as “Daft Punk meets Glitch Mob.” Extremely emotive and with a wide range of influences from classic funk to modern hip hop to future feel, this music really moves me; there is something sad yet resilient about each beat and from the track titles to the album artwork, Pretty Lights is an encompassing experience.

mmm yes!Passing By Behind Your Eyes is the latest release from the artist, and like all Pretty Lights’ albums, is available for free to download on the official Pretty Lights website here.

Download the music, give it to a friend or two and then buy your ticket to see Pretty Lights, who plays in LA October 14 at the Key Club, October 15 at The Independent in SF, and October 17 at Nectar Lounge in Seattle. Find hella more tour dates, West Coast and otherwise, right here.
