Back in January, Goon gifted us with a single called “Garden of Our Neighbor” that preceded a project titled Paint by Numbers Vol. 1 which collected the group’s home recordings made during COVID lockdown. While a Pt. 2 to that record has yet to be announced, the dream-pop ensemble instead revealed plans for a proper album called Hour of Green Evening which officially drops tomorrow.
Adding producer/engineer Phil Hartunian (Gracie Abrams, Mega Bog, Florist) to the mix, and with Spoon’s Alex Fischel providing backing keys, the resulting record is a dreamy combination of psych rock and muted grunge. “This definitely is a record we've always wanted to create,” shares vocalist Kenny Becker, who rejiggered the band’s lineup after 2019’s debut full-length Heaven Is Humming. “It was both a joy and a challenge, and we're deeply proud of it. And we're unspeakably excited to finally share it with everyone!”
With the record officially arriving tomorrow after the release of a video for the final single yesterday, the band is sharing an early stream of the full project here today. All 11 album tracks are available to hear below in the full-LP visualizer—listen in and pre-order the album here.
