We are excited to announce the release of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's brand new album Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015, coming March 24 on Mom+Pop Music.
Freedom Tower is a radical portrait of New York City set to the savage funkacide of the Blues Explosion, locked and loaded with the most deadly, predatory guitar riffs that primitive magnetic tape can handle…. From start to finish, Freedom Tower is overmodulated, cooked with dirt, and finished in acid rain! Freedom Tower is packed with the kind of beats and rhymes that will make even the most reserved Walter Mitty jump back and say “damn!”
Stream first track Do The Get Down now, following a premiere on Pitchfork. The visualizer, edited by Allen Cordell, takes us on a nostalgia trip through the reverse gentrification of The Blues Explosion's stomping ground, NYC.
The band will also be touring the US in support of the record throughout April, in addition to their February appearance at The Music Hall of Williamsburg for the annual Planned Parenthood Valentine's Day benefit concert.
