Lost amidst the hullabaloo of yesterday's world news was the fact that Stones Throw recording artist/multi-instrumentalist/DJ/ egotripland contributor and curry enthusiast James Pants dropped his latest LP. An ingenious departure from his more traditional (for James, anyways) dancefloor-inspired debut, the self-titled James Pants resides in the sweet spot where vintage drum machines, guitar drones, 80s synth pop-style hooks, and the heaviest reverb this side of early Juice Crew or Jesus & Mary Chain co-mingle. In other words, a place uniquely Pants-ian. Peep "Clouds Above the Pacific" below to get more specific. Buy the album here .
