Today's Obsession

I just found out that Peeping Tom's debut album has just been released. PT is the latest project from former Faith No More frontman (and "noise rock renaissance man") Mike Patton. I was--and am--an enormous FNM/Patton fan and, with the exception of his "experimental music" band Fantomas, have enjoyed just about all of his post-FNM forays (including Tomahawk, which has been one of my favorite bands since its inception).

Ipecac Recordings seems to be taking a seemingly more traditional route to marketing PT than it had with other artists, including the preparation of one of those fancy multi-million dollar music videos that features Danny DeVito, among others.

Peeping Tom was on Conan O'Brien's show about two weeks ago, playing their first single, "Mojo." You can check their performance out:

"Mojo" is also streaming from PT's MySpace page. I've found this song to be extremely catchy today. If you like Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, or any of Patton's other projects, or Norah Jones (who shows up on this album), you might want to at least check it out.
