Premiere: Hear a Track from Slam’s New Album
The Glasgow duo's latest is out tomorrow.
Tomorrow, Slam will return with their latest album, Machine Cut Noise.
The double vinyl album will be released by the duo’s Soma Records, delving into “the everyday workings of what makes us human; with life, so to speak, running at the very heart of the album.” With the duo’s extensive touring schedule, many of the ideas for the album were sketched and written in airports, hotels, and where ever inspiration hit while on the road. This relates back to the album’s title, a direct reference to the fact that the tracks were birthed from the machines of life and engineered structures in which we live.
Like much of the duo’s back catalog, Machine Cut Noise is an immaculately produced body of work that focuses on evolving atmospheres, haunting soundscapes, and immense low-end thump. The album’s ambient passages set the mood nicely and make way for its more dystopic cuts and club-based grooves to settle in.
Ahead of tomorrow’s release, you can stream “Viginti Quinque” via the player above, with the album available here.
