Fitz And The Tantrums by Chris Becker

In an April interview, Fitz And The Tantrums‘ singer Noelle Scaggs told CMJ that “[w]e wanted to make a record for how we sound live. It still has a real organic feel to it. We wanted the focus to bridge our music with our live shows.” And, playing with Brooklyn’s rising orchestral dream five-piece HAERTS and the retro-cool singer Ivy Levan, the band was able to show off said sounds live at Irving Plaza.
