Is it ethical to begin a Friday with a Boris news story? The loud bastards will release a new full-length record next April through the aptly named Southern Lord record label.
Not so aptly named perhaps is the record itself; Michio Kurihara and Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) guesting again on Smile, the follow-up to last year’s Pink album (review).
Beating Smile out of the traps will be a CD/7” single and a new video. More details when they emerge from the fugue.
For now, console yourself with the faintly ridiculous but vividly fierce concept of a Boris / Merzbow live split – out now, again through Southern Lord, the 13-track, double-disc effort runs thus:
‘Woman on the Screen’
‘a bao a qu’
‘The Evilone Which Sobs’
‘Flower Sun Rain’
‘Just Abandoned My-self’
