Spencer Seim, the man who serves as the feral axe shredder of Hella and the skins man of The Advantage, will be dropping his new album on August 19th under the nom de guerre of sBACH entitled sBACH on Suicide Squeeze Records. After being backed up into a corner, Mr. Seim concurred to leaking three tracks from this soon to be renowned opus on his MySpace page.
The label describes the album:
"'sBACH' by sBACH is a frenetic mélange akin to the collective sights, sounds and sugar rushes in the heads of an entire elementary school being locked into a Chuck E. Cheese franchise while having to subside on an all you can eat buffet of Fun Dip and Pixie Stix as the animatronic band dishes out phosphorescent doom riffs while running amok with the blips and bleeps.
"Taking cues from the choppy spazz-math of Hella and the 8 bit Nintendo cacophony of The Advantage, Seim utilizes the trademarks steez and proclivities of his two musical ventures to create a new one which morphs into a kitschy, stoner rock fueled archfiend chock full of bastardized jazz rhythms and chicken scratch electronica. With the grating jingles and chimes of an explosion at a pinball machine factory and the caffeinated scour of just about any song that features Seim's vivid musical talent, sBACH will fray the senses and leave you begging for more."
In addition to sampling the MySpace songs, you can download track 5 from "Tripwire" here.
