After nine years, California indie rock trio The Velvet Teen is releasing their senior album via Topshelf Records. Recorded and co-produced by Steve Choi (Rx Bandits, Peaceād Out) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peaceād Out), “All Is Illusory” is the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2006 “Cum Laude!“
While you can definitely hear the late ’90s musical influences in these guys, they add something of their own that is hard to describe. What you’re left with is a fresh indie sound that’s perfect for cruising with the top down on a Summer’s day.
The double LP comes in three variants: black (200), black/silver (300), and silver with black splatter (1000).
All Is Illusory marks the bandās fourth album and is the long-awaited and elegant follow-up to 2006ās Cum Laude! that was recorded and co-produced by Steve Choi (Rx Bandits, Peace'd Out) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peace'd Out). From its gorgeous, swirling electronics to its harder, angular, ā90s-leaning flourishes of grunge, indie and emo, All Is Illusory is a welcome return for a band whose varied influences are still very much intact after its short silence. A double LP packaged inside of a gatefold LP jacket with a metallic silver undercoat.
