Those two cool cats, Gypsy & the Cat have officially announced the name and release date for their third LP ‘Virtual Islands’, to be released Friday 5 August via Gypsy & the Cat’s own independent label ‘Alsatian’, and will be followed by an extensive album tour to be announced.
Xavier Bacash & Lionel Towers spent a lengthy period of time in Japan while putting together their third LP ‘Virtual Islands’ and found the cultural constraints of their homes didn’t apply there.
“We [as a society] are very quick to say things are weird or uncomfortable, and I think the bullish artistic merit that comes out of Japan excites me to take Gypsy & the Cat into interesting places.”
Mixed by Gypsy & The Cat’s Xavier Bacash, the band enlisted the mixing skills of Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Neon Indian, The Flaming Lips) for ‘Inside Your Mind’, and album mastering from Mike Marsh (Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Depeche Mode).
To get you hyped for the release, here is Gypsy & the Cat’s ‘I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else’ for you to enjoy:
