Stuart Howard (Lapalux) and regular collaborator Kerry Leatham have offered a third taste of Nostalchic, Howard’s upcoming debut LP, with the slow-burning “Without You.” Immersive, emotional and unsettling, Howard delivers James Blake sentimentality without the stuffiness and Holy Other texture without the overt gloom. It sounds like heartbreak in the dead of winter but it’s warm enough to warrant repeated listening. Watch the video below.

The single’s available now and Nostalchic is out 3/26 on Brainfeeder.
