On June 24, CLIFFWALKER—the Portland-based bass and vibraphone duo of Cliff Hayes (Buellton) and A. Walker Spring (Old Time Relijun)—release their new EP, Painted Gray Sky. And today, they’ve shared a new track titled “Pulling Threads.” The duo find an unexpected harmony between ethereal, hypnotic vibes and a distorted, robotic bass groove. It’s a gloriously mesmerizing track that makes natural counterparts out of (seemingly) unnaturally paired elements—not quite jazz, not quite rock, definitely not prog but some kind of dirty lounge groove space in between. And it’s a lot of fun to listen to and get lost in. Hear the track in full below.

Cliff Hayes says of the track, “‘Pulling Threads’ is inspired by investigations into various topics and putting pieces together to achieve new self-knowledge. A playful approach to living with all the frustrations of not understanding how the pieces come.”

Painted Gray Sky will be available via the group’s Bandcamp later this month.
