New Zealand’s 9 times platinum, 7 member dub super group, Fat Freddy’s Drop, has a new album Blackbird dropping in 2013, and the first single “Silver & Gold” has been made available as a free download along with a New Zealand 12″ vinyl pressing, that’s already completely sold out – though they may do a European pressing when the album is released. Download the track for free via their soundcloud below.
Back in November, they did a 2-show run of an ‘animated & illustrated’ live preview of the new album at the Sydney Opera House – they’ve offered up a bit of a video recap including interview clips and live footage, check it out here inna hi-fi, or via YouTube below. Keeping things current, here is an interview with Fat Freddy’s saxophonist Scott Towers that dropped earlier today via Stuff.co.nz, discussing the new album & other random things.
The band also recently released a set of remixes done by DJ Vadim featuring the vocalists from his band The Electric – Pugz Atomz & Sabira Jade. They’re all available for free download on their soundcloud, you might recognize the “Flashback” remix from my 2011 Shambhala promo mix, Fractured Sentiments. Check for them after the drop.
