S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT
Now Available for Pre-Order
BEHOLD! As of this very moment, Akron/Family's S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT is now available for pre-order.
First and foremost, all pre-orders get an instant download of the record for immediate bliss. On top of that, those kind folks at DEAD OCEANS have thrown in a few limited edition artifacts. They have printed a very limited run of Akron/Family silk screen posters as well as Akron/Family flags bearing the Vonnegut inspired chant of "So It Goes". Our friends at Joyful Noise Recordings also did a limited edition pressing of purple cassette tapes for S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT which you can order HERE.
Equally as exciting, you can listen to Shinju TNT album opener, "Silly Bears,"
"Silly Bears" is a juxtaposition of hyper-simple mytho-poetic language and imagery amidst a soundscape of chaos and diamond fuzz. It is a daylight tale told at night, or perhaps something like looking at the sun through a black handkerchief tied over your eyes. The song's essence is as much in the radiating harmonics as it is in the words, chords, and notes themselves. Just like writing off the clearly beneficial wisdom of some cheesy new age self-help book because it's too damn easy for any over-informed cynic; writing off the harmo-color interaction and contrast between the themes found in "Silly Bears" due to the simplicity of the words, is like checking out of the library without the book. Enjoy the noise. Take a trip. Make some time to call your old friends!
Finally, for those that prefer digital media over physical, S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT is available today at iTunes, Amazon, eMusic and other DSPs.
S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT is released on 14th March via Dead Oceans
