Jon Spencer Blues Explosion: il nuovo album


Jon Spencer dal lontano Canada a inizio giugno 2014 parlava del futuro discografico della Blues Explosion e degli Heavy Trash. “There probably will be some kind of EP or single released in the next two or three months. We’re finishing that up now. The lead track off the EP was released already in Japan and is a cover of Beastie Boys’ ‘She’s On It.’ It’s a medley of that and the Link Wray song ‘Jack the Ripper.’ We’ve been playing that at every concert we do so we figured we might as well make it available for the rest of the world. The rest I hate going on about in case it all falls apart. It’ll be good”. Riguardo al progetto condiviso con Matt Verta-Ray aggiungeva: “I’m trying to finish another Heavy Trash record with Matt. I was just in the studio with him. We tracked most of the record a long time ago and are trying to oil up the joints and get back at it”.

Sette mesi dopo le carte in tavola vengono scoperte. Tre anni dopo ‘Meat And Bone’ arriva il nuovo album ‘Freedom Tower – No Wave Dance Party 2015’ che sarà fuori il 24 marzo via Mom + Pop. 13 brani descritti come “the savage funkacide of the Blues Explosion, plenty of predatory riffs”. Il primo brano è ‘Do The Get Down‘. Il nuovo singolo ‘‪Betty vs the NYPD‬’.
