FaltyDL (aka NYC producer Drew Lustman) released his third full length album, Hardcourage, last week/month (1/22) via Ninja Tune. For the most part, he's ditched the darker, harder edged UK bass of his last album, in favor of a brighter, wider sound that works great with the album's cover art (above). Friendly Fires' Ed Macfarlane lends his vocals to the track "She Sleeps," and though the rest of the album tends to stay away from vocals, it still packs plenty of other pop moments. You can stream the album in its entirety HERE and watch the video for album single, "Straight & Arrow," below.
FaltyDL just played a Mister Saturday Night party in NYC last week, and he'll play another local show TONIGHT (2/1) at Cameo Gallery with the impressive UK producer Addison Groove and Max Pearl. Tickets for tonight's show are available.
