Mark Lanegan recently released the new EP No Bells On Sunday, but that was really just an appetizer for the upcoming full-length, Phantom Radio. Crazily enough, Lanegan says most of the album’s drum parts were made using an app on his smartphone called Funk Box. You’d expect something that costs a couple bucks from an app store to be a little simplistic, but that only works to Lanegan’s advantage on the hypnotic new single “Floor To The Ocean.” Aided by the drum machine’s insistent chug, a little synth twinkle, and some atmospheric guitar, Lanegan croons his way through the song’s late-night groove. Listen below.
