When he isn’t working as half of the great Fuck Buttons, Benjamin John Power makes music on his own, under the name Blanck Mass. Next month, he’ll release the new album World Eater, and it’s a huge leap forward for the music that Power makes outside his band. Whereas past Blanck Mass records fit under the experimental noise umbrella, the new album sounds like dance music — albeit intense, feverish, apocalyptic dance music. It’s a dark and cathartic album for times that demand darkness and catharsis. We’ve posted the early tracks “Please” and “Silent Treatment,” and now you can stream the whole album below, via NPR.
World Eater is out 3/3 on Sacred Bones.
