If you've been reading the blog for a while you may be aware that we were into Ra Ra Riot last year and their album The Orchard which we featured in our top 15 albums of 2010. (8 months has flown by huh?!). Mathieu Santos of the band is going to be releasing his debut solo album and the first 500 LPs are hand-numbered and pressed on white vinyl. Sexy! There will also be a 7" single for the album opener "I Can Hear The Trains Coming" that will be released soon by Old Flame Records limited to 300 copies pressed on green vinyl. Today though, you can listen to the entire album Massachusetts 2010 via the player below and get a feel for Mathieu's style.
Up at the top you can check out the visuals for lead single "I Can Hear The Trains Coming" which are bright and colourful. Should help you wake up, if the barrage of videos featuring slasher/gore and a tonne of weird stuff haven't done so already.
