It's not surprising that Lorca previously turned up on Throwing Snow's Left_Blank label. The Brighton-based producer shares the oblique rhythms and lush textures of Left_Blank labelmates Visionist, Vessel and El Kid, and here he launches effortlessly into the full-blown emotional sweep that characterizes Throwing Snow's recent output. "Can't See Higher" is a sweet tune—an anthem of sorts, but an unassuming one, made of rolling acoustic drums, rich organs and wistful little vocal fillips. It's clearly modeled after Joy Orbison's "Hyph Mngo," but it doesn't sound much like its peers in that mini-genre. For one thing, it actually nails the whole fist-clenching, breast-beating, tear-down-the-sky tension and release thing, which most of Joy O's followers can only gesture at. On top of that, the sound design follows its own schema. Sure, the sampled female vocals are a trope heard in 90% of bass and UK house music these days, but he makes them work, subtly elongating the phrase as the track reaches its climax. "Missed Me," on the flip, keeps things more low key. It shares the palette of "Can't See Higher," but its energies turn inward, resulting in a shuffling, brooding take on 130 BPM—a fine warm-up tune that stews in its own juices without merely treading water.
