Last month we brought you "Kulti," a multi-flavored, glistening drone-dub odyssey from French bedroom auteur High Wolf. The beatmaking vagabond may have developed his sound while train-hopping and hitchhiking across entire continents, but his taste for diversely sourced psychedelia and impossibly deep grooves make Los Angeles' Not Not Fun label his perfect home. Those notorious tape-trading DIY aesthetes are dropping High Wolf's next LP, Kairos: Chronos, on June 11, but you can stream the entire thing below, right now. While shorter trips like "An Empire Upon an Empire" display an ear for knotty melodic chains and hand-drum pulse-pacing, tracks like the 13-minute "Alvarado" exemplify the man's knack for crafting sonic events that boom until they burst. Run with the Wolf:
