Okay, so. First things first: no one’s getting a Maserati.
Now that that’s settled… dance-y, kraut-y, Athens, Georgia post-everything band Maserati are releasing their new album, Pyramid of the Sun, on November 9 via Temporary Residence. The album, which was mixed by Justin Van Der Volgen (!!!, Out Hud) and Jeremy deVine (Temporary Residence’s founding duder), features eight new tracks (including two joints with Zombi’s Steve Moore).
If you’re interested in this whole music fad thing, you can download one of those eight tracks, the instrumental jam “We Got the System to Fight the System,” over at the Pitchfork medias. If you’re like me, though, you can forget about all this download-upload-kilobits-gigawatts-buzzbin-usedbin malarkey and just turn on the soooothing sounds of sports talk radio instead (today’s HOT DEBATE? Was Derek Jeter right to fucking pretend to be hit by a pitch in Wednesday night’s game against the Rays??? Fuck, I’m calling in. Let’s see… 1-888-SAY-ESPN. Ringing…).
Oh. Also, the band is touring this fall with A.E. Paterra of Zombi on drums. Gotta go!
