New Fleshtones Album Coming -- Free Mp3!

Well, I'll be a dog. Just last Sunday on Terrell's Sound World I was saying saying it's about damn time for a new Fleshtones album, Lo and behold, the station got a news release from Yep Roc records announcing just that. Their upcoming record is called Brooklyn Sound Solution.

The hardest working garage rockers in the U.S., The Fleshtones return with its first long player since 2008’s Stocking Stuffer. Clocking in at just slightly more than 30 minutes, BSS is one part covers record, one part originals all mixed with an R&B chaser. It shows Peter Zaremba (vocals, harmonica and organ), Keith Streng (guitar and vocals), Bill Milhizer (drums and vocals) and Ken Fox (bass and vocals) in fine form, with 12 tracks, including a boozy surf-rock cover of The Beatles’ “Day Tripper,” a psychedelized version of B.B. Arnold’s “I Wish You Would” (made popular by The Yardbirds) and the tripped-out Zaremba-penned “Bite of My Soul.”
Lenny Kaye of The Patti Smith Smith Band sits in on all the tracks. The release date is March 15.

The last non-Christmas record by The Fleshtones was Take a Good Look from early 2008.
