We all know Peter (of PB&J) has been running about freely these last few months, putting in guest appearances with Carl Newman and covering Gene Clark...turns out he's also had time to record a solo album! The Last Tycoon will be released by Touch And Go / Quarterstick on April 8th, with him channeling The Beatles, The Byrds, and The Kinks.
He's got the sound down perfectly, and managed to distinguish himself from the PB&J juggernaut. Love how "Social Competence" builds and drops those Lou Reed-esque sweeping strings in there!
Pre-order it here.
