Brooklyn-based electronic indie band Balún self-identify as transnational. Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Balún's early efforts received 4/5 stars from both Club Fonograma and All Music, the former calling Memoria Textil "gorgeously crafted," while the latter enthused that Balún would "sound right at home... on a mix next to Aphex Twin [and] Modest Mouse." Produced by Lawson White (Gil Scott-Heron, Chromeo, David Lang), Balún's long awaited sopohmore album Prisma Tropical focuses an incredibly wide field of genres and influences into a revelatory sound that evokes both of the band's homes and the distance between them.
