High Places self-titled debut was recorded by the bands Rob Barber and Mary Pearson in their apartment in Brooklyns Fort Greene neighborhood. They employed a wide variety of instruments to make this album, ranging from the more traditional: 12 string guitar, banjo, shakers and rattles, bass, bells and Kalimba to the inventive: plastic bags, mixing bowls, wood blocks and other common household objects.
A split album (or split) is a music album which includes tracks by two or more separate artists. There have been singles and EPs of the same variety, which are often called "split singles" and "split EPs" respectively. Split albums differ from "various artists" compilation albums in that they generally include several tracks of each artist, or few artists with one or two tracks each, instead of multiple artists with only one or two tracks each.
New York duo High Places makes music that is intimate and quirky. Using digital tools to create loops, samples and treated sounds, Mary Pearson and Robert Barber also use handheld percussion instruments, banjos, bells and guitars in creating their delightful aural treats. Water is frequently evoked, from the ebb and flow feel of their music to slightly surreal sounds (dripping, trickling rhythms) in songs like You In Forty Years.
High Places is a band originating from Brooklyn, New York, recently relocated to Los Angeles, California. The band is a duo comprising t Rob Barber and vocalist Mary Pearson.

Both were performing as solo musicians at the time, Mary as Transformation Surprise, and Rob as the Urxed
By shifting between instrumental- and lyric-driven tracks, the fog never gets too thick. At times, Pearson’s sustained notes linger and blend with the enveloping atmospherics, as on the gorgeous, contemplative stillness of From Stardust to Sentience. Meanwhile, The Storm sees Mary obscuring the divide between a soft voice and a strong wind, as her soothing tone wisps lightly through the treetops. While cohesive as a whole, many of the songs venture through their own discreet narratives. High Places are naturals. Remaining fresh without disturbing a winning method, the group have outdone themselves with this album. It manages to captures our curiosity without giving away too much, gently nudging us to explore.
