in our first issue we pleaded with the poxymash people of the world to 'push things forward'. it is therefore fitting that we should honour the new release of producer david sitek's album 'maximum balloon'. having been previously named by nme as the number one most 'forward thinking person in the music industry', sitek has carried his mantle well. while he is perhaps better known as a member of tv on the radio, he has also produced works for such illustrious bands as yeah yeah yeahs, liars, foals, celebration and telepathe. his debut solo album is essentially a synthy pop affair, making for easy listening, with each of the ten tracks featuring a guest vocalist such as little dragon, karen o and theophilus london. sitek will launch the album on september 14th, in barfly, camden.
post script: while we will celebrate his success, we may demand a grovelling apology for producing scarlett johansson's 'anywhere i lay my head' album in 2008. it hurt. bad.
