Juan Maclean Releases "Everybody Get Close" LP Today!

Since the release of 2009’s The Future Will Come, John “Juan” Maclean has stayed quite busy remixing artists like Chairlift, Matthew Dear, The Tough Alliance and forthcoming remixes for Yoko Ono and Stevie Nicks. He’s also appeared on both the Holy Ghost! Static on the Wire! EP (shredding guitar solo!) and taken front man duties on Shit Robot’s “Grim Receiver”. Today, Juan Maclean has released of Everybody Get Close on DFA Records.
 
The digital-only album features previously released outtakes and re-mastered tracks, as well as remixes from some of his most talented colleagues. To hear it first, check out the full record streaming on SPIN. Interspersed among the eleven songs are three remixes and five originals that previously appeared on Find A Way, an EP only previously available at Juan Maclean’s live shows. “Find A Way” opens the record with call-and-response vocals from Maclean and bandmate Nancy Whang atop an electronic pop base. You can download “Find A Way” HERE and we encourage you to post and share. Cut Copy’s take on “Happy House” tones down the glee of the original with the inclusion of muscular, brawny vocals. Meanwhile, album closer and title track “Everybody Get Close” has mechanical vocals and funky synth bleats that show faint traces of major influences like Zapp and S.O.S. band, respectively.
 
Juan Maclean and Nancy Whang have already begun work on The Juan Maclean’s 3rd LP for DFA Records. In the meantime, the digital compilation Everybody Get Closeserves as a welcome reminder of the music Juan Maclean has contributed to both the dance and indie communities. It can only hint at what might come next from the chameleon-like Juan Maclean.
 
Juan Maclean will be embarking on an international tour this month—be sure to catch him in your city!
