Artist: The Present

Listen: “Sunbeam”
From: New York, US

Reason to listen: Rusty Santo, one third of The Present has produced some of my favourite albums ever including Animal Collective’s Sung Tongs, Panda Bear’s Person Pitch, Born Ruffians’ Red, Yellow & Blue, and Dent May’s The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele. If this is not a good enough reason, I don’t know what is!?
