New Burma...even louder than before

I've been listening to the new Mission of Burma album Unsound for a week or so, not really long enough to let it sink in, but enough to hear that it's rougher and more explosive than either of the post-reunion albums, and maybe more in-your-face than Vs.. It's also more irregularly structured I think, or possibly the structures are more complicated and harder to grasp right away. As I said, I need to listen to this more before I really get it.

Doesn't hurt that the lead-off track is named after my friend Michael's band. (Oh, I know, it's probably not. Probably working out housekeeping issues...) anyway, here it is.

"Dust Devil"

It's on Fire Records (not Matador this time) in July.

I'm glad that you get to listen to it already! I wondered what they could keep doing on the new album so that's as encouraging a "warning" as ever. Vs is familiar to me so time to dig into The Sound The Speed The Light some more to prepare.
