OUT NOW: new albums from Helvetia & Solos
Oh happy release day. Today we are happy to birth into the world two new amazing albums: Nothing In Rambling from Helvetia, and Beast Of Both Worlds from Solos!
SOLOS "BEAST OF BOTH WORLDS"
Released today is the debut album from Solos - the brand spankin' new "power psych" project from Spencer Seim (Hella, The Advantage) and Aaron Ross (also a member of Hella from their 5-piece days). Beast of Both Worlds was recorded and produced by the legendary Guy Massey (The Beatles, Radiohead, Spiritualized, Depeche Mode, etc.), and has already received praise from Pitchfork, SPIN, and others, being compared to the likes of Dirty Projectors, Yeasayer, Tame Impalam and Mae Shi. If that's your bag, check out the full album stream which SPIN has posted below:
