Hollow Pigeons- Letters to Kiko

15-year old wunderkind, Hollow Pigeons, has just graced us by sending along his latest EP Letters to Kiko.  The EP is a dark, atmospheric release that produces some of the best beats I’ve heard this year.  Although the songs are instrumentals, they share many similarities with the glitchy and blissed-out music of Baths.  It’s really impressive how well Hollow Pigeons …
