Tom Tom Club, the band founded by Heads Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz (Talking Heads), released a new EP 'Downtown Rockers', their first new music in over a decade.
Like all their music over the last 30 years, the new Tom Tom Club's EP is still new wave with light and funky tunes that get your body moving, breezy, danceable and fun. The album was mixed by Ed Stasium, who also recorded and mixed Talking Heads '77 and umpteen Ramones classics.
Asked about the length of time between albums, Frantz said: "Well, yes, I did, but then I realized that we're not the kind of band that churns things out, or as quickly as we used to. We're a little circumspect now, more particular. And also, being grown-up adults, we've got a lot more responsibilities than we used to have."
We have 2 tracks from the EP in our regular rotation: 'Downtown Rockers' and 'You Make Me Rock and Roll'.
'Downtown Rockers' is released on Nacional Records today (September 11). Watch the artwork below.
