Upcoming Releases – Legendary Pink Dots – Seconds Late For The Brighton Line (ROIR)
Posted on September 11, 2010 by admin
An upcoming full-length from this Anglo-Dutch collective which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year! It’s scheduled for release on October 5th via ROIR label.
Led by singer / songwriter Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist / songwriter Phil “The Silverman” Knight, LPD continues to create their singular brand of modern psychedelia. Ka-Spel is well known for his intimate and dark tales delivered with the whimsy & acid drenched tone of Pink Floyd era Syd Barrett. The Sliverman and a changing cast of players provide a rich sonic backdrop that touches on classic psychedlia, electronica, industrial, goth, psych-folk, post-punk and experimental sounds. Over nearly 40 albums the band has created a sprawling and important body of work that rivals the greatest in underground music.
Their new album “Seconds Late For The Brighton Line” finds the band in familiar territory; pulsing Kraut-rock, dark and sinister pop, epic post-industrial soundscapes. Edward Ka-Spel’s lyrics breathe with a sagacity and cleverness found in rock’s greatest writers. With the departure of long-time members Neils Van Hoorn & Martjn the band operates as a foursome with added guest players. Standout cuts include: the driving “Russian Roulette” which proves the band still can generate the dark power and tension that help build their world-wide following and the introspective and spare “Hauptbanhnhof 20:10″ for which there is a beautiful music video. The core members plus added guest players will tour North America this Fall. – ROIR
