Anthony Gonzalez - "Midnight City"

Although it will [presumably] be a good while before more record tracks are heard by "the masses," album features are set to include: Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, Mars Volta) behind the boards, Zola Jesus, Brad Laner (Medicine) on guitar, and Morgan Kibby... When talking "influences" in a recent press release, Anthony Gonzalez cites Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 2LP-spanning Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness: "I saw when I was a teenager, that I could dig into [the album]. It was like a treasure! If I were a teenager nowadays, I would try to find something as creative as this album. They had so much to say in their songs." Gonzalez revealed a few further details in 2 recent interviews - SPIN on June 26th and Pitchfork from Nov. 2010.
