Publicist "Hand To Mouth"
Newly minted San Francisco label Voltaire Records (run by producer Loose Shus and DJ Hotthobo of the Grow Up party) is prepping its first release from Sebastian Thomson (a.k.a. Publicist). Thomson also happens to be the drummer for synth-rock band Trans Am, but this is his first solo project. As Publicist, Thomson mixes live drums with retro-futuristic analog sounds that harken back to '70s-era Krautrock and Miami electro of the '80s, vocoders and all. Titled Keep It Off the Record, the release features five original productions and will be out November 16. Available for download is a song from the record called "Hand To Mouth," a funky space jam that is ready for take off alongside James Murphy, Kraftwerk, and Bootsy Collins. Publicist opens for Lindstrom at San Francisco's Mezzanine on November 12.
