Catalog no.: MRBLP0000211

Item ID: 481665

Nearly a decade since their last record, Jay Malinowski and Eon Sinclair better known as duo Bedouin Soundclash, return with their fifth studio album 'MASS'. While pulling from their old catalogue of eclectic post-punk world-beat tendencies, the band journeys further into New Orleans jazz, Afro-pop, electronic and gospel on their latest offering, reflecting a creative rebirth influenced by the cities and musicians that surrounded them. Co-produced by Bedouin Soundclash and legendary Philadelphia house DJ King Britt, along with musical direction from Ben Jaffe of Preservation Hall, 'MASS' spans two
communities, recorded at Marigny Studio's in New Orleans with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and in Vancouver at St. James Church with the children of the St. James Music Academy.
Mirroring the magnetic energy of New Orleans, 'MASS' is a dense sonic journey that incorporates an impressive array of musical influences including big band swing to New Orleans jazz, pop, electronica, and more. From the post-punk-soca of album opener 'Salt Water', the jangling big band swing-pop of 'Clockwork', to the Talking Heads-channelling 'When We're Gone', and the
dubbing Afro-pop gospel of 'Holy' that features Mike Dillon distorting his marimbas into another sonic dimension, 'MASS' is jam-packed with infectious melodies and summery feel-good vibes.
