Javier Reyes, part of the trio that makes up the US instrumental progressive outfit Animals As Leaders, has inked a deal with Sumerian Records for his project Mestis. This will see the release of a debut EP, Basal Ganglia, set to be released on November 27th, 2012. The EP is a five-track offering showcasing Reyes' vast musical diversity and features an intriguing variety of instrumentation performed by highly acclaimed musicians.

Reyes had this to say about the EP: "Basal Ganglia is an EP that come from several places, and by places, I mean influences. I've always wanted to create a style of music that focused on being emotionally exploitive and technically sound, yet simple enough for the average music listener to appreciate. Another influence was using the eight string guitar in a form that is unconventional to the 'trends' or independent of characteristics that are found in music styles/genres that have popularized it. Another and important reason was to create a true form of my own independent voice as an artist. To create music that expressed my personality, upbringing, emotions and musical taste."

Check out a preview of the upcoming EP below.
