Some things of note regarding The Like’s new album, Release Me: it was recorded live, to tape, via strictly analog gear, with producers Alex Greenwald (formerly of Phantom Planet), the Dap-Kings’ Tommy Brenneck, Homer Steinweiss, and Victor Axelrod, and some guy named Mark Ronson. Oh wait, we know that dude. He’s pretty good! As those facts and the above photo imply, first listen “Fair Game” sounds pretty retro, all headspinning organ touches and bustling drums. Release Me arrives in full on June 15.
