Never a force content to deliver obvious moves, the next release from the Racebannon juggernaut sees them joining forces with some friends and releasing…*gasp* a DJ-styled 12″ release. Yes folks, Wrap the Body!
A collaboration between Racebannon and Jilly Weiss (We Are Hex), and also featuring a full-blown remix from long time friendsYea Big, Kid Static and Stak; this is Racebannon at both their weirdest and yet most recognizable. Yes, the requisite churn, chaos, and darkness are all present and yes, Mike Andersonbelts out yet another genre-bending throat-box assault. The razor riffing is omnipresent, and the low-end hits like a depth charge. But the token Bannon weapons collide face-first with programmed beats, samples, and an instantly frenzied vocal contribution from Weiss, who sounds like a banshee possessed by equal parts PJ Harvey, bad acid, and Satan herself. The end result is something that is immediately memorable, catchy, scary, and downright original. [More]
Yea Big and Kid Static have a brand spank-crackle-and-poppin’ new video for Stomp The Pedal off their new album. This video is a collaboration with French animator, comic artist and illustrator, Ronald Grandpey. It’s crazy how exhilirating a pencil and a few thousand sheets of paper can be. The world premiere of Stomp was in Barcelona, Spain on May 23 an illustration/comics festival. Now the video is on the internets for everyone to enjoy!!! Get your ass hit and ran on.
