Album Preview: The Phoenix Foundation - "Fandango"

New Zealand's The Pheonix Foundation are back with their much anticipated followup to 2011's critically acclaimed and commercial hit Buffalo. The six piece, consisting of Samuel Flynn Scott (vocals/guitar), Luke Buda (vocal/guitar), Conrad Wedde (guitar/keys), Tom Callwood (bass guitar/vocal), Chris O'Connor (drums) and Will Ricketts (percussion, keyboards),  have returned with Fandango

The album features 80 minites of "soulful yacht rock," heard on the album's opening track "Black Mould" along with pysche-folk on "Modern Folk." It's easy to see why The Phoenix Foundation have already picked up a considerable amount of praise with the release of the melodic ballad, "The Captain" which highlights the vocal talent of frontman Lukas Buda. "The Captain" can be heard below, enjoy.

  1. does "soulful yacht rock" describe this album or their previous albums? I heard no yacht vibe on Buffalo, for example. And I love it.
