The Warp veteran and favourite of ours here at Animaux, Tom “Squarepusher” Jenkins, has an announced a new LP, Damogen Furies, due out on Warp April 20th. To celebrate, he’s released one of the albums tracks, Rayc Fire 2, for free download on his website (www.squarepusher.net).
All of the album’s tracks were recorded live in one take, and if the new single is anything to go by, it promises to be a brutally psychedelic and glitch ridden work that i’m thrilled to explore.
This will be his first LP in 3 years, although his output has remained steady with a number of EPs and side projects, including last year’s “Music For Robots”- a collaboration with Japanese robot designers.
