Today, Oberhofer has revealed details of his forthcoming release, Chronovision. The album will be released August 21st via Glassnote Records. This is the second LP for the young Brad Oberhofer, who released his debut Time Capsules II in 2012. He has kept busy since then, appearing on Letterman, playing Lollapalooza, and tours with Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian and Matt & Kim.
The new album is his signature amped psych-pop with orchestral flourish, New Wave flare, and grungy fuzz, but multiplied with his intensity that only time and life’s gut checks can enhance. Today, you can Listen to the first single off the album, “Memory Remains.”
The road to Chronovision was winding, owing to Oberhofer’s resolve to produce the LP himself and initially taking him from the Catskills to Seattle and back. A final spurt brought him to a studio in his hometown of Tacoma, two NYC facilities (Strange Weather, Electric Lady), and the former Sound City in Los Angeles. Lastly: Atlanta to mix with Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Washed Out). Exactly 106 demos later, Oberhofer emerged with these 12 songs.
