BEAT CONNECTION'S PRODUCT 3 ADVANCE STREAMING ON STEREOGUM

ALBUM OUT 10/23 ON ANTI- RECORDS

TOURING THIS FALL + WINTER

Seattle electro-pop quartet Beat Connection's long-awaited new record Product 3is out next week -- October 23 on ANTI- Records -- and Stereogum is streaming the full album in advance right now, raving, "The songs are understated yet energetic, with an eccentric genre palette that deftly cuts a path through electronic pop, rock, hip-hop, and R&B without ever plunging head-on into any one sound. It's all catchy verses atop relaxed, feel-good instrumentation that lets its various components subtle shimmer in and out of the mix. The result is the most daring and sophisticated music of Beat Connection's career."

Advance praise for Product 3:

"[F]eel-good, summer anthem-worthy sonic compositions." - Interview

"Reed Juenger's unshaken attention to production detail and Tom Eddy's electric brightness make for engaging frontmen, while the drum and bass tandem of Jarred Katz and Mark Hunter keep the foundation moving along like a bullet train... The world that Beat Connection occupy is bright, sleek, and completely separate, and you want to be there with them more with every song. If this is an omen of what's to come, then Beat Connection are just getting started on their way to greatness." - KEXP

"[E]ffortless, heavenly pop with an artful bent." - Clash

"They may be from one of the nation's most overcast cities, but their bubbly electropop is a sunny afternoon jam of the highest order."
- Consequence of Sound

"'Illusion' [is] an ebullient mix of hard-hitting beats and bouncy synths. The quartet make a triumphant follow-up to their 2012 debut album, Palace Garden, by punching up their usual brand of dance-rock with a funky guitar riff and smooth vocals. 'Illusion' is aptly named, providing you with a three minute fantasy that your world is as exuberant and psychedelic as the band's widescreen soundscapes." -SPIN

"Known for crafting immediately likable electro-pop tracks, Beat Connection is on the cusp of the upper echelons of success." - Culture Collide
