about

The sixth Von Sleight album, Drop the Space Needle, will be out on 12/12/13 on Fringe Biology Recordings. Tracks from this album were constructed by dropping old works into new environments, making sculptures from heaps of rusted scraps. The sounds on Drop the Space Needle range from the pulsing synth-tribal-disco-funk rhythms of the lead cut "We Are Supersonic" to the industrial funk of "Chief Seattle and the B-Ball Caper" to "History of the Wound”, a short story by Brian Younker read to a krautrock jam. Instruments employed include the Korg MS-20 and Electribe EA-1 synths, bass guitar, trumpet, 3-stringed and rubber band zithers, voice, natural recordings, electronic and acoustic drums, and electrified homemade instruments. The “We Are Supersonic" video follows Chief Seattle's voyage to rescue a basketball team on Planet Supersonic in his Space Needle UFO. Link to video here:
