February >> is representing the new album rack with some classic artists as well as some freshness.
Veterans in Beck and Band Of Horses help us celebrate the first New Music Tuesday of the month along with Primus' bass-slapping frontman Les Claypool in his latest project Duo De Twang.
But it’s the indie electro dream combo of Phantogram and ††† [Crosses] that got me stupid excited for fresh music this month. Wurd.
Phantogram's sophomore album Voices is about 5-years overdue but should be the shit. The self-titled - or, self-stylized more so - album from ††† [Crosses] is also much anticipated but only the 1st full length studio release. But a few EP's by the super collaboration plus a handful of underground gems I've come across over the years have gotten me in need for a legit dose. Said rarities alongside more and refreshingly distinct creations spearheaded by Chino Moreno of The Deftones should have everyone excited as fuck too.
But enough about my earhole anxiety over this sample size. Here’s a complete list of all the notables about to drop in February:
