The New Slave: 1975
1975, the song you are listening today is by The New Slave, the San Francisco, California, based band, also featured at Insomnia Radio: Daily Dose on 2009 July the 6th. Forget Progress, Return to Instinct is their new album.
Imagine, if you will, that a band has travelled light-years through the foreboding expanse of the musical universe. Throughout their last few releases, The New Slave has explored vast constellations of sound. In 2008 the band worked closely with Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes (credits include Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Young Galaxy, SUUNS, Patrick Watson, Islands) writing, recording, and perfecting their 2009 debut, self-titled concept album. Traveling all over galactic sound blasts, The New Slave was looking for a place of settlement. The band has always been moving towards some unknown entity, logging their experiences with stripped-down lyrics, banks of gritty keyboards, a howling electric guitar, and acoustic textures.
