Out This Week: Banjo or Freakout (Stream Album)

Looking for a great "dreamy" pop album?  Check out Banjo or Freakout, out this week.  I first discovered them when they released a free xmas EP back in December... I'm still listening.


Banjo or Freakout by Banjo or Freakout

"After a string of plaudits for remixes of artists as diverse as Bloc Party, Burial, Wild Beasts and Amy Winehouse, it wasnʼt long before Banjoʼs first EP Upside Down was received to critical praise across the board. Swathed in gauzy melancholia, itʼs a precursor to the introspective delirium of this album, though Alessioʻs approach to making music has never wavered: "I just want to write very personal pop songs that are not going to die in a couple of years, songs that have longevity, that you could go back to and listen in 10 years and still feel close to." Banjo Or Freakout does that, his twinkling revelries a distant cousin to future touring partner (this November) Gold Panda and his cinematic dream pop, dense yet ethereal."
