Summer is finally here! And with that, the schedule of album releases slows a bit, letting everyone digest the musical offerings of spring. Although the year is still somewhat young, there have been some incredible releases already. Acoustically speaking, it has already been a year rife with innovation.
UK-based experimental pop band Fanfarlo will return to the US this week for a month-long tour in support of their new album Let’s Go Extinct. Recorded by the band and David Wrench in a tucked-away recording studio in North Wales, Let’s Go Extinct is, in many ways, the true successor to the band’s debut, Reservoir. Having cast off the colder, more synthetic feel of their second record, Rooms Filled With Light, Let’s Go Extinct is the sound of the band cutting loose from all expectation, and just letting whatever’s going to come, come.
