Rostam Batmanglij, formerly the keyboardist and studio wiz in Vampire Weekend, has become a sought-after producer who bridges the shrinking divide among indie-rock, R&B, and pop. In just the past two years, he’s worked with artists as different as Haim, Frank Ocean, and Walkmen leader Hamilton Leithauser. Now Batmanglij is pulling a Kanye West: transitioning from behind the boards to center stage. Though he doesn’t sound like a natural frontman—he sings with a coy, marble-mouthed delivery—his debut, Half-Light, is a kaleidoscopic outsider-pop record with rich instrumental passages befitting his production prowess. Rostam’s is a welcome new, yet familiar, voice.
