Le1f prefers plush and airy tones on 'Tree House'

Le1f kicked off the year with his January mixtape Fly Zone, and now he's helping to round 2013 out with its follow-up, Tree House. Where Fly Zone standouts like "Spa Day" and "Airbending" explored the rattling low-end of bass music, Tree Zone rests softly on the plush, airy tones of hipster bedroom R&B via joints like "Hush Bb," "Blood Oranges," and "Hibiscus." (Credit producers The-Drum, FaltyDL, and Boody for that.) 

Or, if you're a fan of a certain Japanese game-cum-media-empire, the set may best be explained by Le1f's explanation that Tree House is Pokémon type "Grass/Love/Psychic." We have no idea if that's helpful, but we do know the man has a thing for Pikachu. Regardless you can stream the mixtape below or download it for free. Le1f also has a short tour scheduled — dates beneath the 14-track album.
