Raleigh Moncrief, who you may know as the engineer/co-producer of Dirty Projectors' Bitte Orca or a touring member of Marnie Stern's band, also spends his time making electro-R&B infected indie pop under his own name. He released his first full length album of material last year, Watered Lawn, on the mostly-hip-hop label Anticon. The album goes back and forth between Grizzly Bear-ish clean guitars and vocal swells and blown out Brainfeeder bass drops. Grab two album tracks, "I Just Saw" and "Lament For Morning" above or stream them below, along with the video of the latter. You can also download/stream a cover of "I Just Saw" by likeminded artist Baths.
Raleigh Moncrief has an upcoming show in NYC happening on April 23 at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's not clear if the show is part of a larger tour but Raleigh is based in California so presumably he'll be playing some other shows along the way.
