Blanck Mass — the project of musician Benjamin John Power — announces his new album, In Ferneaux, out Feb. 26 on Sacred Bones, and shares “Starstuff,” a single edit from the album. It’s the follow-up to 2019’s Animated Violence Mild, which “channels the horrors of the surveillance state and the creeping dread of everyday life into the most aggressive music of [Power’s] career” (Pitchfork). In turn, In Ferneaux explores pain in motion, building audio-spatial chambers of experience and memory.

Django Django, whose members met in Edinburgh and later migrated to London, England, are described as an ‘art rock’ band, or experimental or avant-garde rock, that draws from many influences, including classical and psychedelia.
They bring their stylistic rhythms and harmonies to the 9:30 Club on Wednesday, July 29th, in support of their second album, Born Under Saturn. Their first self-titled album, ranked among Rolling Stone’s Top 50 albums of 2012. Their second album is on track for similar acclaim.
The funky single, Spy Hunter theme crossed with beach music, “Shake and Tremble”, is a good example of the range their sound can take on. A sound that defies pure categorization.
The first single off of Born Under Saturn, was the deeply resonating but airy, “First Light”.
Tickets to their show, which should prove to be a lively and unique experience, are available online here.
Come out and see Django Django!
