Peter Matthew Bauer signs on, shares single, announces album

Peter Matthew Bauer, founding member of seminal New York bands ‘The Walkmen’ and “The Recoys”, has just announced the release of his debut solo album “Liberation!” out 23rd June on Memphis Industries. The album was recorded by Bauer, Christopher Colbert and Quentin Stoltzfus (of Light Heat & Mazarin) in Philadelphia, PA.

Listen to the first single, “Latin American Ficciones” at Pitchfork, here.

Preorder the album below from iTunes and get an instant download of “Latin American Ficciones”.

Liberation! is a collection of mostly autobiographical songs on the topic of belief and its various incarnations and phenomena. It touches on such subjects as growing up in a Hindu Yoga cult, Scientology, the city of Philadelphia, the God Shiva, the city of Varanasi, Richard Dawkins and Jorge Luis Borges, and was heavily influenced by the work of Roberto Bolaño & Elvis Presley. While a solo artist, his album makes the noise of a full on rock & roll band and his traveling act is a made up of dirtbag greasers from Fishtown, Philadelphia and Austin, Texas.
