The Phish frontman toys with horns and covers Gorillaz on new solo record
Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will release his latest solo effort, Traveler, on October 16th through ATO, but now you can turn in and drop out with this exclusive advance stream.
You can listen below (well you already are, since it autoplays, and no, I have no control over that) or pause it below and pop up this popup Rolling Stone Player. Enjoy!
The record opens with the shimmering, love-versus-the-apocalypse ode "Corona" and goes on to find Anastasio incorporating funky, fat horns and whirring synths on "Land of Nod" and Zappa-esque orchestral meanderings that turn pure pop on "Scabbard." Traveler even includes a zonked-out, soul-tinged cover of the Gorillaz track "Clint Eastwood." You can pre-order Traveler on iTunes and stream it above.
Guitarist, composer, songwriter, Trey Anastasio has a long list of appropriate titles rivaled only by the list of his musical accomplishments. Co-founding the seminal improvisational rock band, Phish, in 1983, the limits to Trey's creativity seem to have no boundaries. In 2004 alone he performed his last concerts with Phish, did several festivals with his horn-driven Dectet, toured as a part of Dave Matthews and Friends and conducted a self-composed orchestral set in front of 90,000 fans at Bonnaroo. Trey's current focus is on merging his past accomplishments with his present goals, showcasing more of his multi-faceted musical expertise.
Totally Fuzzy was the name, music discovery was the game.
It only took one braindead Google monkey to destroy almost 10 years of dedication...
