London’s HIGHLIFE is the new project from White Magic guitarist Sleepy Doug Shaw (with help from members of Gang Gang Dance and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti in various capacities). Shaw sent over his first finished track, “F Kenya Rip,” which features lovely background vocals from Mira Billotte (also from White Magic). It’s a warm, meandering summer tune that sounds a bit like Dan Bejar fronting an Afro-pop group from Ghana. Together with “Burying Stones,” a very promising start.
