It’s difficult to believe that more than a year and a half has passed since we properly praised Far-Out Fangtooth on this ridiculous website. It’s even more difficult to believe that we failed to officially put down any words of praise about “Borrowed Time,” the spectacular album they released late in 2013 (although we have blathered on about our love for the album on Twitter regularly since its release).
Sometimes there’s simply not enough time in the day, week, month or year to write about all of the great music we’re fortunate enough to hear.
But as it relates to Far-Out Fangtooth, we’re prepared to rectify the situation right now: “Borrowed Time” is not one of our favorite records of 2013. “Borrowed Time” is not one of our favorite records of 2014. “Borrowed Time” is truly revealing itself to be one of our favorite albums of all-time. Like, ever. And we’re old. In more ways than one, we are living on “Borrowed Time.”
Below is a new video for “Admit It,” one of nine far-out songs that appear on “Borrowed Time.”
Far-Out Fangtooth are heading out on tour now, and will also be a part of the appropriately massive annual SXSW “Levitation” party, produced by our friends at Austin Psych Fest. Dig it.
