Great stuff this - new track by White Suns called “Priest in the Laboratory”. It’s going to be on their new album ‘Totem’, which comes out on March 18th.
On this new album, White Suns’ signature onslaught is tempered by deadened stares and slow-burn instrumentals. Renowned recording engineer Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans, Foetus) provided documentation of the performance in his labyrinthine BC Studio compound. Totem is rock music realizing its obsolescence; the work of a band compelled to mutate.
Here’s the trailer of a documentary about Martin Bisi / BC studios, a recording studio in Brooklyn where I did a bunch of work in the 80s and 90s, as did Sonic Youth Swans, Dresden Dolls, Live Skull, Bill Laswell, Eno, Iggy and dozens of others. I make a sneak appearance.
