On Southern Shores' first release in over three years, the beloved Toronto duo perfect the art of electronic escapism. Those familiar with their earlier work (and newcomers alike) should find much comfort in Loja, a rhythmic and globally-minded album that transports listeners to exotic destinations left consciously undefined. This timely return arrives with a sense of both nostalgia and renewal, building on a Balearic sound revived by mid-2000s Swedish label Sincerely Yours (The Tough Alliance, Air France) and further windswept in the present era courtesy of Brooklyn-based kindred spirit (and Southern Shores' longtime home), Cascine.
