London, England’s Fanfarlo will release their new album, Let’s Go Extinct, on February 11th, 2014 on Blue Horizon, the British blues label revived by legendary record industry veterans Seymour Stein and Richard Gotteher. 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 much-feted debut, Reservoir.
In its newfound openness, the record takes in the 50s electronic experimentations of Raymond Scott, Shadow Morton rockabilly filtered through Suicide, West Coast sacred cows Brian Wilson and Fleetwood Mac, a little Krautrock here, a spaghetti western flourish there, a blast of Young Americans soul all the way over there. What these disparate musical inflections don’t reveal, however, is that Fanfarlo’s latest record is never less than gorgeous, grade-A pop music.
