I just got an email from Harvey Abouelata, The Atomic Swindlers’ manager, updating media outlets about their progress on the new album. The email included a taste from the new scratches on the album, and while I’ll not overstep my privilege and share, I can tell you things are sounding great for the new album.
A few of the songs fans may know from the live performances have made their way onto the album, including Lotus Ghost and Into the Strange (for which I put together a video that you can see here). I’m really pleased to see that It’s Over is making the cut, apparently. I don’t think I’ve heard this but once, at their last Milestones performance. It’s a great anthemic peice with a lot of that great Ziggy Stardust sound you expect to hear from the Swindlers.
I’m really itching to review the new album, and more importantly, to go see them play again. Soon, Tommy! Soon!
