Darlings Prepare Their Ace Slacker Pop Masterpiece Perfect Trip for Release in Early 2013

“Darlings recorded Perfect Trip at Philadelphia’s Headroom Studio and mixed at Brooklyn’s Death by Audio during a particularly oppressive heat wave. Recorded straight to analog tape with minimal overdubs, the result is a batch of songs more propulsive and urgent than their previous releases combined.. Lead single “Pet the Ghost,” released in August on Famous Class Records, burns through three minutes of fuzz-pop bliss, layering boy-girl harmonies, without taking a breath.
