“Pinzif” is kind of a tease. It opens up with a momentum to get you interested, then quickly fades away, leaving you clinging on and listening to its tiny beats behind.

Hang in there, though, and you’ll find “Prinzif” gathering steam, finally breaking into a bassy throb that surpasses the track’s opening rhythm. The mix of abstraction and structure is typical of Brian Leeds, the Kansas City musician behind Huerco S. ThroughoutColonial Patterns, he weaves hypnotic atmospheres with bold, repetitive beats, resulting in tunes that are as fun to nod to as they are to nod off to. Put “Prinzif” on repeat and you might find yourself doing both.
