MBM's Opaque Couche

To all the fellow zombies out there, there's a new Meat Beat Manifesto album released this week, Opaque Couché.

My hardcopy arrived yesterday. Souds like JD working the studio overtime, building around his own beat-heavy samples and sculpting sound-shapes; it includes a couple of tracks from his last MBM EP, "Ear-Lips" and "Forced to Lie" (certainly a politically-focused title). wink

Perhaps this collection could have been included in last year's Impossible Star as a double-album, but I think there's just enough variation within it to stand apart.

peace

Hey man I also just received my CD in the mail dancing jig I really like this CD-it's totally different from any other music I've ever heard in my life.....Though I heavily dig every track on this album I'm tied between choosing Moving Pulse & Critical Soul Vibrations as my favorite song from the album. I would also really like to know what the lyrics are for the song [Ear-Lips].....Anyway I'm really excited to hear what they will release next music I'm also thankful the band is active in my lifetime so Thank you so much, Meat Beat Manifesto fro

Peace

For me, I find "Pin Drop" to be the hot track here--great to feature as the single to promo the album.

I've been surprised to hear acoustic guitar sprinkled in this collection, prominently within at least one of the tunes, anyway--a very rare heard thing among the breadth of this project! I can't say whether the instrument was originally recorded or sampled.

I've stumbled across a nice overview of the album and band, published by Igloo Magazine.

"[Press-Release] According to Brooklyn-based art blog Hyperallergic, opaque couché wins 'the title of "World’s Ugliest Color."' So why did Meat Beat Manifesto (MBM) name its new album Opaque Couché? 'I wanted to do a title based around a particular color, so I wanted to give opaque couché a chance since it’s not black or white,' explains MBM mastermind Jack Dangers."
