Retro-Industrial MP3

What with the continued popularity of those 1980s theme bands, from Interpol to the Killers to the Rapture, it’s inevitable that someone would arrive to channel for us the mechanized ruckus of such industrial acts as Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb and Consolidated. Kill Memory Crash does just that, filtering those groups’ cyber-adenoidal sounds through the subsequent improvements in recording technology, which lend the band’s new album, American Automatic, its first full-length, a sense of detail that its militaristic predecessors only could have dreamed of. The album is out this week on the Ghostly International label, which has made the title track available as a free MP3 download from the release’s promotional page (link). More info at ghostly.com.
