Ghostly International will release the American producer's next album in February.
The Minneapolis-based artist has been putting out records for the past few years, pushing a sound that's equal parts hip-hop and IDM. Based on the first single, Palace Chalace (which you can stream over at Pitchfork), his new album seems to follow suit, though this time it's partly inspired by Mux Mool's response to the economic situation, a theme that's loosely reflected in the title. He explains:
"Today, young Americans have very little to look forward to except endless war, endless debt, no Social Security, and [the fact that] none of us can live without the constant fear of poverty. We don't need to have big houses and cars and a nest egg to get along. There's nothing that says you can't rent an apartment your whole life and not be happy."
The album will come out in February of next year.
