Aaural II

If you've read Decoder for any amount of time, you'll probably have seen "Ann Arbor" come up a fair bit, thanks to a good creative infusion from the University of Michigan and the variety of local musicians and producers who have just announced the more formal organization of themselves into a "collective"; GRL MTN is the result. Their connection to their city is strongly felt...
"Sometimes a place emits a magical essence. We are GRL MTN, not only a collective of musicians, but a group of friends drawn together by the spirit of a small town in Michigan: Ann Arbor. We invite you into our world through a destination unbridled by physical location to explore our art . . . Warmed by your presence, we’d love to share our Ann Arbor with you."
Though the GRL MTN's catalog collects a diverse group of releases from its members, its organizers have seen fit to announce the new group with a mixtape, titled Aaural II, which follows on last year's mix of the same name from a sleepier, nascent iteration of the collective. It's got exclusives from beat master Chrome Sparks, a gorgeous excursion from MedicineHat, and a slew of others from some of our friends like Kohwi and Sad Souls. Not to be missed...
Aaural II is a compilation of our latest work—spanning abstract melancholic ballads to pulsating grooves, channeling through environments organic and electronic.
