Hibou, the Seattle-based project of 21-year-old Peter Michel, has signed to Barsuk and we'll be releasing the band's self-titled debut album on September 18. Today Stereogum premiered the album's lead track "Dissolve," saying "The track starts out as an especially warm and friendly spin on the C86 sound — all steady pulse, luminescent guitar, and mystical whispers — before exploding into a wonderfully florid prog-rock finish that feels like an entire woodland scene bursting into a celebratory dance routine, possibly with aliens present."
