Fuck Buttons set to release Slow Focus on July 23; [*sex joke*]

It’s been more than three years since Tarot Sport (TMT Review). The Fuck Buttons’ last album maintained a somewhat unplaceable grace — a visceral charm equal parts geometry and fluidity. It was left-field dance music devoid of utility and set alive with exaggeration. Centered about a motorik axis, Tarot Sport’s tracks unraveled, rewound, coiled, and blossomed, a collection of serpentine trajectories born from a single pathway of unremitting linear progression.

Having previously “used producers as safety nets,” the duo have decided to go it solo on Slow Focus, ultimately making the decision to place engineering and producing responsibilities squarely on themselves. Well, they’re out there now, creatively naked as it were, with a retooled vision and a touch of wisdom under their belts. The final product remains to be heard, but I assume that it will be a droney, percussiony, post-rocky, noisey affair. Hell, that ought to be the album’s tag-line (nudge, nudge).

Slow Focus will hit shelves July 23 via ATP Records.
