Patton & Peeps Prep Production
BILLBOARD Mike Patton’s (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantomas) latest project, PEEPING TOM, will release its self-titled album on May 30 via Ipecac Records. Collaborators include Norah Jones (!?!), Kool Keith, Massive Attack, Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, Amon Tobin, Dub Trio, Bebel Gilberto, Dos One and members of the Melvins.
"I don't know how many songs he recorded — an insane amount, like 30," Melvins drummer Dale Crover told Billboard.com. "There's a lot of layered vocals — like Beach Boys style. Some hip hop-y sort of beats. It's weird. It's drum machine mixed with live drums mixed with crazy samples, but then there's guitar and bass."
"I don't listen to the radio, but if I did, this is what I'd want it to sound like," Mike Patton said of the project, according to Billboard.com. "This is my version of pop music. In way, this is an exercise for me: taking all these things I've learned over the years and putting them into a pop format."
