In July, Mission Of Burma will put out Unsound, their first record since 2009′s The Sound The Speed The Light. Today the reunited group unveiled the leadoff track “Dust Devil,” a raw, rollicking cut. Stream it below.
Unsound is out 7/9 on Fire Records.
The production sounds really clumsy and loose, which I guess that doesn’t really affect MoB’s style. I’m curious as to why they’re no longer on Matador, though, and how much that detail affected the under-produced clanky sound. Perhaps the label had to make way for Ceremony by pushing some punk vets out the door…
The production sounds like Weston trying to make it sound like an updated version of Richard Harte’s production, which is kind of a bummer, because it seems like they’re trying to make it sound gritty and messy to make up for the fact that the song itself is a little pedestrian (I should add that as an avowed MoB superfan, it pained me greatly to type that).
I just tried singing “That’s When I Reach for My Revolver” while pronouncing the “r”s like “w”s. I have to say, it really knocks the wind out of that song.
