Phantom Radio on LP

Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 release from the Alt-Rock singer/songwriter. Lanegan's chief compositional tool on PHANTOM RADIO was his phone - specifically an app called Funk Box. 'I didn't bother to hook up my 909 and 808 this time,' he says, 'because the app had 'em. I'd write drum parts with it then add music with the synthesizer or the guitar. ' the album grew organically from these synthetic roots, taking in Mark's ongoing love of Krautrock and also an '80s new wave show on Sirius satellite radio, his favored aural companion as he drives around Los Angeles. Mark's favorite song on the album is 'Torn Red Heart', an intensely tender meditation for a broken heart that's like the Velvet Underground's 'Pale Blue Eyes' orchestrated by Angelo Badalamenti. He also has a special mention for 'Floor of the Ocean', which balances sheer catchiness with a deceptively bleak lyrical reflection on a life lived on the hard shoulder. Favourite song on the album, meanwhile, is Torn Red Heart, an intensely tender meditation for a broken heart that's like the Velvet Underground's Pale Blue Eyes orchestrated by Angelo Badalamenti. He also has a special mention for Floor of the Ocean, which balances sheer catchiness with a deceptively bleak lyrical reflection on a life lived on the hard shoulder: 'Clear eyes, can't avoid the searchlight/Hope that they don't find me/Find me where I'm lying.
