James Righton Releases Solo Record

On Friday, Klaxons co-founder James Righton released his debut solo record The Performer on Deewee Records (PIAS).
The Performer LP stands in stark contrast to the electro-hedonism of Righton’s work with Klaxons. Instead, it spins through various points from 1970 onwards. It touches on the suave art-lounge of Roxy Music, the jangly grooves of R.E.M., the sumptuous psychedelia of latter-day Beach Boys, and the song writing gift of Nick Lowe. In short, it uses classic elements as the groundwork for something which feels a natural fit for 2020.
