American experimental pop band Aloha will release Light Works, a mini LP consisting on 7 tracks. Artwork designed by Daniel Danger and Jake Kelly, packed in a digipak form.
Aloha's most gorgeous, ambitious, and fully realized songs on a 30-minute long mini-album. Richly detailed, moody, intensely rhythmic, and flowing with melody. Aloha multi-instrumentalist and studio wizard TJ Lipple mixes in the studio magic while leaving the free-spirited vibe of the recording sessions intact. Piano, brass, oddly tuned guitars, drums, bass, mallet instruments, and vintage keyboards fill out the arrangements.-insound

All you need to do is to rock the clock on the other side, and your alarm will be snoozed. No more buttons. Cool eh? Many colors available. Via Daylife.
