TURING MACHINE ANNOUNCE LONG AWAITED NEW ALBUM
CELEBRATED DANCE-ROCK TRIO TO RELEASE FIRST NEW MATERIAL IN EIGHT YEARS ON TEMPORARY RESIDENCE LTD
DOWNLOAD ‘SLAVE TO THE ALGORITHM‘
Dance-rock trio Turing Machine have announced the release of their first album in eight years, What Is The Meaning Of What, set for release May 8 on Temporary Residence Ltd. The extended hiatus that ensued following the release of their critically-acclaimed 2004 album Zwei was in large part due to drummer Jerry Fuchs’ run of high profile collaborations with !!!, Maserati, The Juan Maclean, LCD Soundsystem, Holy Ghost!, MSTRKRFT, and Massive Attack, amongst others. Recording for What Is The Meaning Of What began in 2008, but came to a halt following Fuchs’ tragic death in an elevator accident in Brooklyn, NY. After revisiting the tracks, Turing Machine’s remaining members, guitarist Justin Chearno and bassist Scott DeSimon, went into the Brooklyn studios of producers Andrew Raposo (Midnight Magic) and Abe Seiferth to finish writing and recording the record. Over the course of 2011 they called on a plethora of friends to contribute, LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney, Disappears vocalist Brian Case and a host of musicians from the DFA roster, including Abe Seiferth, DJ McNany and Caito Sanchez (Midnight Magic).
What Is The Meaning Of What ups the ante on the uptempo psychedelic post-punk fetishism of Zwei, boasting seven tracks of forceful dance-floor rock anthems. Propelled by Fuchs’ unrelenting grooves and bubbling with layer upon layer of hypnotic riffs, the album locks in its target (your hips) and refuses to let go for its 40-minute duration. Check out the full track list and album art below.
