Let's Go To Spacecamp
In January of 2009, the then named, Spacecamp and Hynes recorded the album at Brooklyn's Mission Sound with producer Ben Allen. Shortly after that, Spacecamp invited guitarist James Pollis to join the band and complete the lineup. In late 2010 and early 2011, the band started playing shows and writing their first full-length album that is scheduled for release in Fall 2012.
Sounding something like MGMT if they got in a fight with the Futureheads and the Police, the band fuses electronics, power pop, and worldly pop music into a dizzying combination that's a bit off centre but really quite good. Why they're waiting so long to release their debut is beyond me...but until then enjoy the first sounds from that record...
