Camera - 'Phantom Of Liberty' (album stream) (premiere)

Camera has come through with eight tracks of frenetic Krautrock, reckless and relentless the whole way through.

The cover of Phantom of Liberty features a close-up grimace, lips burst back as though they’re in a wind tunnel. And, really, that’s a fitting summary of the album as a whole — Camera has come through with eight tracks of frenetic Krautrock, reckless and relentless the whole way through. At times it’s mellow, and at times it’s blisteringly fast, but throughout the entire thing the distortion and thudding low drums never let up. It’s a trip for sure, and you may exit in an entirely different state than you started.

Phantom of Liberty releases this Friday, August 5. Three days in advance, we’ve got a stream of the full album here — check it out.
