Classixx’s debut album ‘Hanging Gardens’ now available for full stream on NPR
You can listen to that new Classixx album that I’ve been gabbing about for months now on NPR — one week ahead of its release on Innovative Leisure. They’ve already previewed “Holding On,” “Borderline,” and “All You’re Waiting For” but much every indie dance fan’s happiness, there are nine more originals where those came from. Also a bit of a surprise, they are finally releasing “I’ll Get You” which has been floating around the internet since 2009.
If the duo, born and bred in sunny Southern California, were ever only known for their DJing, Hanging Gardens will completely shatter these false pretenses. Not only is it rare for artists to release a long play these days, but it’s more rare when each and every track is worthy of your time and attention. I’m blown away by their mature production and incredible knack for melodies and synth-heavy pop bliss. As NPR’s Otis Hart explains, “there are probably five or six moments on Hanging Gardens that will douse your brain in serotonin whether you want them to or not.”
