Emerging Leeds producer Liston got our attention with a couple of flickering, garage-influenced tunes earlier this year—namely, “All On You” and “Yan See.” Now, the artist has released a new six-track EP with London label XVI, called Sleeper. Taken from the new record, “Something New” is a prime example of subtle beatcraft, and features a shimmering, organic bed of sound on top of which a vocal sample intones—in a way that’s optimistic and sinister at the same time—”but what have you tried lately?” The rest of Sleeper, which is out now, can be streamed after the jump.
