After their first 12" single release "Sounds Sane / Klock" last year, Lazer Sword teamed up again and will release an album called "Memory" in late April via Modeselektor's Monkeytown Records.
"Memory" may not be a complete departure from Lazer Sword's earlier work, but those looking for the slapping hip-hop beats and crunked-up vibes that defined the group's past releases may be surprised to find that Antaeus Roy (a.k.a. Lando Kal) and Bryant Rutledge (a.k.a. Low Limit) have seriously trimmed the fat while simultaneously expanding their sonic palette. This is a sleeker, sexier version of Lazer Sword, one that take cues from ‘80s electro, Detroit techno, and various brands of UK futurism. Yes, there is still plenty of low end, but the duo's thick bass tones now serve as a jumping off point rather than a tool to bash you over the head.
The album will be available on CD, limited edition clear vinyl and as download.
