Van Goose (the project of Marcy Playground's drummer Shlomi Lavie) has shared his debut solo album, Habitual Eater, and we are pleased to premiere its stream ahead of its official release this Friday. The album is equal parts post-punk derived electro-pop and wryly deadpan bedroom-pop. Below check out the stream, album art, and tracklist, followed by Van Goose's upcoming tour dates.

On the making of the album Lavie had this to say: "I was involved with music since I can remember but things were never quite right. There was always some interference. An extra noise inside my head. And it got louder and louder. So, I had to put a stop to it. I had no choice but show some resistance to my habit of quieting down the noises and instead, I sat down and made a record out of it. I spent about four years, mainly alone in my home studio, recording music. 
Habitual Eater is the product of finally providing these noises a proper stage outside of my head."

Lavie first found his current home in Brooklyn when he traveled there to record as a drummer for Habilium. Eventually, Lavie grew restless and decided to branch out into new creative territory which lead to his joining multi-platinum alternative rockers Marcy Playground as a drummer and finally culminating in his debut solo record.
