Zombie Gospel frontman Julian Fulton has been busy of late, as the Monmouth County, NJ songsmith dropped an EP titled Reverie in February before following up last week with another four-track collection named Noise.
A psychedelia-laced Art-Rock experiment, Fulton seemingly channels some of Australia’s favorite mind drippers, providing the warm pop sensibilities of Tame Impala and the sparse arrangements of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, but not without hints of grandiosity that recalls MGMT at its most structurally sound and surreal.
“Both EP’s were recorded in my garage…Just trying to keep building my catalog, pumping out recordings, and forcing new songs out of myself,” Fulton aid via e-mail. “My latest music has been inspired greatly by the results of SIMGE’s 24-hour songwriting comp and how I was forced to approach songwriting differently and more urgently.”
“I’m still saving a lot of my more polished babies for a studio record,” Fulton added, “and I’m hoping that’ll happen in the very near future, but hoping to continue releasing these spur of the moment EP’s/songs (aka the Work From Home Sessions) for the time being.”.
Stream and download Noise below and be sure to see Julian Fulton play some of these new selections at The Saint on Tuesday, April 7, when he’ll headline the Asbury Cafe-presented Early Spring Acoustic Festival, which will feature Relms (with Joe Rocco Miller, 10pm), Bobby Mahoney (8:30), Geena Alessia Buono (7:35), Candace Schur (7pm), and Fun While You Wait (10:40).
