With Netherlands' new album, "Silicon Vapor," released last week, BurningAmbulance.com today presents the premiere of the Brooklyn trio's latest video for the song "Sixteen." Check it out in the player below. The full album is also available for streaming right here.
Burning Ambulance is the blog and quarterly magazine of Phil Freeman, whose writing has appeared in The Village Voice, The Wire, Alternative Press, Jazziz, and more. Freeman writes, "Silicon Vapor is a genuinely unique record; its songs blend face-punching stoner-metal riffs that'll entice fans of Kyuss or Sleep with ultra-theatrical vocals that are part Muse, part Cardiacs, and at time hit pitches high enough to recall Budgie's Burke Shelley."
Of the "Sixteen" video, directed by Allison Berkoy, Freeman writes, "'Sixteen' is one of this weird album's weirdest songs; the keyboards occasionally make a noise not unlike Morphine's punchy baritone sax riffs, and the wordless vocals in the beginning are truly eerie, particularly when combined with the odd, water-fixated imagery of the video."
Netherlands is fronted by Timo Ellis, a composer and multi-instrumentalist whose 20-year career has seen him collaborate with Yoko Ono, Melvins, John Zorn, and many other greats. Netherlands' second album, "Silicon Vapor" was recorded by John Davis (Moby, The Roots), mixed by Bryce Goggin (Swans, Pavement), and mastered by Ron Shaffer (Tricky). More...

BrooklynVegan states: "As you might expect from Ellis' resume, Netherlands is a pretty strange band. They play gritty, high-energy punk/metal, anchored by a huge distorted synth bass tone; the effect is something like Future of the Left banging out one of Torche's more rambunctious tunes." More...
