Peeping Tom

Who? Mike Patton, the man behind Fantomas, Faith No More, Tomahawk, and a handful of other side projects has joined forces with old label mates Doseone and Odd Nosdam, as well as new friends Massive Attack, Norah Jones, and Kid Koala.

What’s the Deal? Patton combines his searing vocals with electrified synth beats, jungle drums, and danceable dark undertones. With an all-star cast adding their talents to Patton’s mix, Peeping Tom sounds like underground dungeon rock, with hints of Nine Inch Nails, Mindless Self Indulgence, Thirteen and God, and Themselves.

Fun Fact Mike Patton has more than just music connections; he also has ties with Danny DeVito, who makes a special guest appearance in the video for “Mojo.” DeVito first heard of Patton when his 17-year-old son introduced him to Fantomas. The two met at Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2005 and now speak regularly, practicing their Italian. KRISTINA GRINOVICH
