Neon Neon Praxis Makes Perfect on LP + CD
Praxis Makes Perfect is the sophomore album from Neon Neon (the collaborative project featuring Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip) and follow-up to their 2008 Mercury-shortlisted debut Stainless Style, a concept album based on the life of colorful motoring mogul John DeLorean.
Praxis Makes Perfect is inspired by the life and times of Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. Born in to one of Italy’s wealthiest families, Feltrinelli was a left-wing political activist and published some of the greatest literary works of the 20th century, including The Leopard and Doctor Zhivago. He died in highly suspicious circumstances in 1972.
The 10-song set continues the aesthetic of slick drive time retro pop songs showcased on its predecessor and features guest appearances from Sabrina Salerno, Asia Argento, Cate Le Bon, and Josh Klinghoffer. Vinyl pressing with accompanying CD courtesy of Lex Records.
