[Listen] John Frusciante - 'PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone' (Full Album Stream)

Earlier in the Summer we got the return EP Letur-Lefr from former Red Hot Chili Pepper's guitarist John Frusciante. Now we get our first full length LP from the guitar virtuoso since 2009's The Empyrean, check out the full stream of John's newest entry PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone above which released in Japan today and is set to release next week for everyone else. If you dig it, make sure you pre-order the album at his official website and pick this one up so Johnny can release more music. He did have 400 songs written after all.  Enjoy!

[Listen] Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Magpies on Fire" x "Victorian Machinery"

We've talked about before, Red Hot Chili Peppers are will release some unheard tracks as part of a singles project over the coming 6 months. They'll be released as nine two-sided 7" vinyls. Yesterday two of these tracks appeared online, one titled "Magpies on Fire" and another that goes by the name of "Victorian Machinery". Check them out below but to purchase your own copies head over to the band's site. We very much look forward to hearing more in the coming months.

[Download] John Frusciante - "Walls and Doors"

Just when I think im done for the day, the homie Invisible Movement lets me know that the pre-order for the upcoming John Frusciante album PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone has launched as well as the debut of a new song. That's right kiddies, the former Chili Pepper's guitarist's new 9 track album is now available to pre-order at his official website and you can also get your taste of the new LP with the drum break heavy, melody changing, synth pop cut "Walls and Doors" in the player below which is also available as a Hi-Res wav file to download.

This song, recorded in September 2010, marks the point at which I began combining 60s and early 70s production styles with modern electronic production styles. This song was also the first time I successfully balanced pop music with abstract forms of music. This song showed me that the pop parts of myself and the more adventurous parts of myself could blend without one compromising the scope of the other. After this song I did not pick up the ball and run, but rather I continued to challenge myself, experiment and investigate, more from the abstract angle than the pop angle, until March 2011, at which point I’d figured out the things which made it possible for me to consistently make precisely the music I wanted to make, in which I was not restraining any part of my nature, allowing me to begin the recording ofPBX. I might mention that Walls And Doors was also the first time my electronic instruments had begun to convey the visceral energy that one associates with people beating the fuck out of their instruments, in the context of a pop song.

Unlike Frusciante's latest EP Letur-Lefr the album which features guest spots from RZA and more, PBX is contains no guest features on vocals. That's okay, I for one am just happy John is putting out new shit for us to enjoy. PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone will be released in Japan on September 12th, in North America on September 25th and in the rest of the world on September 24th. Like Letur-LefrPBX Funicular Intaglio Zone will be available on vinyl, CD, cassette and in 32 bit, FLAC and MP3 digital formats.
