Lazer Sword's new LP Memory is coming out on April 27 and here are some lazer sword noises to go with it: bezow, skrit, zing!

Lazer Sword? Uh, they call that a lightsaber, bro! Ought to go see a Star War, bro! Totally slammed some anonymous bros right there. The game is over, though, because I have real, true news about Lazer Sword, the electronic duo consisting of producers Low Limit and Lando Kal. If you’re not familiar, they say that their music “feels like surfing down the side of a volcano,” which sounds really hot and uncomfortable. I get what they’re saying, though. It’s a simple math problem where volcano = rad and surfing = rad, so volcano + surfing = rad x 2.

Soon, the world will get more volcano surfing music, as the duo is releasing their second record Memory on April 27 via Monkeytown. You may know Monkeytown as the label run by Modeselektor, who you may know as those guys Thom Yorke likes a whole lot. A month before the album’s release, Lazer Sword will be on a tour of the United States, including a stop in SXSW, like all the other bands that there are. They’ll celebrate the release of their new record by touring Europe, where they will be playing shows until roughly the midpoint of May. On a tangential note, I was really scared when I was six and I saw Obi-wan Kenobi cut off that alien’s arms in Star Wars.
