So we’ve got The Postal Service, David Bowie and Suede. And sure enough, Seattle’s Tullycraft may be “under the radar” compared to those iconic artists, but within the twee and indie pop world they are kings.
Their new album titled Lost In Translation will be released by long-time indie pop label Magic Marker Records in the United States and then by Fortuna POP! in the United Kingdom in the Spring. This will be their first release in six years. Produced by Phil Ek (The Shins, Band of Horses, Built to Spill, The Halo Benders, The Shout Out Louds, Fleet Foxes, The Walkmen), the album is polished up bringing you the best of their pop sensibilities but all the while keeping things quite punk. You can easily hear this in their new single “Lost In Light Rotation” (stream below).
Here’s a tidbit from their facebook about the recording process:
After a hiatus that lasted almost three years, Tullycraft has begun the process of recording a new album. It’s been a long time since we’ve recorded a record, so we’re currently trying to remember how to do it. It’s hard for me to imagine how many people will actually be interested in hearing a new Tullycraft album, but I’m sure we’ll have fun making it. More details will follow as the process moves forward. Thanks for listening!
Listen to their new single “Lost In Light Rotation” below. It will be released as a 7″ single by Fortuna POP! prior to the album’s release. It will also include b-side “Bad Connection” which is a cover of British synthpop duo Yazoo.
