Details: Fantasy 15 "Zoltandia" Purple Rain or Black LP (2023, Eraserhood Sound/Colemine Records). New stock, sealed.
Description: "Eraserhood Sound’s mysterious, intergalactic house band Fantasy 15 is finally ready to unleash their debut LP, Zoltandia. After years of rising anticipation which saw the group release a handful of now-sold-out, highly sought-after 45s, Fantasy 15 has delivered a modern synth-funk opus. The album, named after the group’s remote home planet, is a dazzling display and features an audacious blend of soul, funk, disco, boogie, house, hip-hop, New Wave, and much more. Zoltandia is a true sonic journey, a concept album that tells the fantastical tale of the beloved freedom fighters Fantasy 15. The group, whose true identity has always been a mystery, pushes the limits of their musical experimentation further than ever.
Lead single, “Interplanetary Lover,” features the show-stopping Kendra Morris on lead vocals, and serves as the group’s first proper love song. Elsewhere, the title track “Zoltandia” features chanting group vocals and a disco-boogie groove that nods to legends like William Onyeabor and Kiki Gyan. As always, the group’s material was recorded and produced at Eraserhood Sound’s in-house analog recording studio in Philadelphia. Words can only do so much, however, to fully describe the scale and beauty of Fantasy 15’s story. Pick up a copy of their debut LP today, and prepare to enjoy the journey of a lifetime."
