Today we're listening to Octave Minds, the collaboration between pianist Chilly Gonzalez and EDM producer Boys Noize. Thank you to Eric for the recommendation. Their self-titled LP came out in 2014, and it's a strange combination of delicate and danceable. It's almost all vocal-free, except verses from a 21-year-old Chance the Rapper on "Tap Dance." Since the duo has only released one album, we're also including a live performance they did in Berlin in 2015. The performance incorporates live orchestra and chorus, and reinterprets the album beautifully.
