PREMIER: Playboy Manbaby – Lobotomobile
After a show-stopping set at October’s Lost Lake Music Festival space-cadet thunder-punk six-piece, Playboy Manbaby announced earlier this month that they would be releasing a brand new album. Lobotomobile is due out April,6 but to peak, the appetite of their ravenous fanbase the Phoenix natives are premiering 3- songs today.
College is a Scam, Strange Plastic Surgery, and I’m Impatient are the first new tunes out of the Phoenix indie darlings since February of 2017’s Don’t Let it Be. and they haven’t lost a thing in that year. In fact, the group added a lot to their repertoire and perhaps their newest horn and background vocalist saxophone player Dallas Austin Ricky Smash Lavender Rickert who can be heard loud on clear on “College is a Scam” shouting “College is a goddam scam” along with frontman Robbie Pfeffer.
Pfeffer’s off the wall lyrics take center stage in the album’s third track Strange Plastic Surgery, and are backed up heavily by the heavy-handed drummer Chad B. Dennis. Track 4 I’m impatient features some angular guitars by T.J. Friga a sound not often heard in the tunes of Playboy Manbaby, but a welcome deviation from their previous Work. Along with the stellar contributions by Chris Hudson on bass and David Cosme on trumpet, vocals, and auxiliary percussion Lobotomobile seems like it is going to blow Playboy’s previous work out of the water.
To go along with releasing the new tracks Playboy Manbaby is also opening up pre-sales for the new record in all formats including Digital, CD, Cassette, and Vinyl, as well as releasing West Coast tour dates for April to go along with a May, 18 date in Brooklyn at The Gutter for Pizzafest.
