Free Energy Stuck On Nothing (Astralwerks/DFA Records; March 9, 2010 digital / May 4, 2010 physical)

Album Cover & “Hope Child” MP3 Premiered on Pitchfork!

“I loved making that record. It was so good to record guitars again. I kind of forgot that I used to be really good at that — recording guitars.”
– James Murphy

“…a perfectly tart, semi glammy, Thin Lizzy-style nugget of summery rock’n’roll”
– Spin

“a good-time 1970s rock rip of epic proportions… unbridled and, in the spirit of things, totally rad (Best New Music)”
– Pitchfork

“Free Energy burst with unironic sun-flecked highs – it’s classic rock from 8-track heaven.”
– Alternative Press

From “Free Energy” to “Dark Trance,” Free Energy has been hinting at their forthcoming debut full-length album since the Spring. As an early treat, the band released a digital EP in September featuring two album tracks and a B-side, “Something In Common”. Produced by DFA’s James Murphy, Free Energy’s debut full-length album, Stuck On Nothing, will be released digitally on March 9 and physically on May 4 via Astralwerks/DFA Records. The band is embarking on a national tour throughout February and March with Foreign Born. For a preview of the album, check out the “Hope Child” MP3 on Pitchfork here!

Opening the album and lead by a simple cowbell, the 70’s inspired self titled track “Free Energy” will get stuck in your head for days! “All I Know,” a lovesick pop-ballad, highlights the band’s unique sound seamlessly by incorporating dirty guitar riffs and bongo drums. The beat-driven repetitive lyrics of “Bang Pop” make for an irresistibly anthemic party song.
