2013 is clearly Jonathan Rado’s year! With his fellow comrades in Foxygen, Rado kicked off 2013 with the release of the well-received We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic, then took the bulk of the midyear to tour with his mates (see tour dates below), and on September 3 he’ll release his debut solo LP, Law And Order, via Woodist.
 
“Faces” is the first sampling of Rado’s solo personality and, at first listen, he’s a real charmer. Rado’s hazy poetics paired with the featured guitar work of Tim Presley of White Fence makes “Faces” what you might imagine an au courant Velvet Underground to sound like. It’s pleasantly down to earth while simultaneously being light on its feet. Check it out below.
