« Kevin Drew's (of Broken Social Scene) new "Good Sex" remixed (listen); Album release show at Bowery Ballroom | Rough Francis (sons of Death) releasing a new album, playing shows (dates & 2 new song streams) »
by Doug Moore
Portland racket-makers The Body have historically enjoyed collaboration albums, having worked with both The Assembly of Light choir on All The Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood and with Braveyoung on Nothing Passes.
They've just announced another collaborative album, and it's a doozy. On the upcoming I Shall Die Here LP, The Body will collaborate with critically-beloved electronic musician Bobby Krlic, AKA The Haxan Cloak. They've already debuted a song from the LP, which is pretty much what you'd expect -- noisy, repetitive, and forbidding. You can stream it below. I Shall Die Here will come out on April 1 in the US via RVNG.
In related news, the Body will be touring North America during the month of March (including an NYC stop at Saint Vitus on 3/22), as well as appearing at the Gilead Media Fest in Wisconsin in July. Meanwhile, The Haxan Cloak will play Barcelona's Primavera Sound fest on May 30.
