|14-strong outfit Operation Aloha, featuring members of Maroon 5, Gomez and Phantom Planet, will self-release their debut album on May 12.|
"With a month of free time in between tours, recording and the general chaos of their schedules, each musician flew to the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii to live in a strange compound of tree houses with friends whom they respect and share common interests with. Captivated by the magnificence of the island, members of Maroon 5, Gomez and Phantom Planet, among others, decided to plug in some instruments and see what happens. The end result is a collection of songs that captures the tranquility, freedom and spirit of Hawaii. Their self-released and self-titled debut will be released on May 12th.
Allowing themselves to step away from their usual roles and be inspired by bohemian living and a no-constraints approach to songwriting and recording, Operation Aloha experiments with a love of blues inspired rock and Hawaiian folk music, to create a clever collection of songs that draws from the fantasy of escape."

Someone's noticed MGMT and Empire of the Sun are getting plays it seems.
I heard a Gomez song once per recommendation and threw up. Maroon 5 is the tits
Gomez's first two albums are excellent folkfluenced alt-rock, and their later stuff is more interesting than most bands out today. Live they're phenominal.
