ALASKAS is Dillon James Rego, a one-man power-house of primitive bliss, looped vocals and loose, slippery beat boxing. Featuring new recordings of some of his most rhythmically and lyrically memorable songs as well as new, reverb-drenched hymns, Set Yourself Free is a masterfully crafted experiment in layering and melody at once ferocious, meditative and wholly unique. Recalling Campfire Songs-era Animal Collective, the rhythmic curiosity of Black Dice and the free-range vocals of Sunburned Hand of Man, ALASKAS is a loud, bright light in the dense blanket fog of "experimental music." Tear the volume knob off your receiver and engage fully in a wave of off-kilter melody. You've never heard music like this.
