After months of buzz on the blogosphere, Ryan Hemsworth has finally dropped his debut album, Guilt Trips. And for fans of Oneohtrix Point Never's first record or Toro y Moi, the Canadian DJ/producer has given you a new album to binge on.
"Small + Lost" opens the album in a minimal but memorable fashion. A looped piano chord murmurs over and over, building a rhythm that eventually veers into chillwave-meets-hip hop territory. When the proper melody—sung by British singer-songwriter Sinead Harnett—takes over, Hemsworth melds minimalism with synth-pop in a beautiful way.
Listen to it above and check out Hemsworth's excellent remix of Rhye's "Open" as well.
