Operator Music Band prep new album ‘Duo Duo’ (listen to “Slim Spin”)
Brooklyn’s Operator Music Band will release their new album, Duo Duo, which is out September 20 via Broken Circles (pre-order). The group’s shiny, clinical brand of pop — populated with gurgling synthesizers, funky krautrock-style drumming, and jazzy chord progressions — draws comparisons to Stereolab but they bring their own style to the table, with a strong dance element as well. The first single from the album, “Slim Spin,” is a particularly gleaming example of what they do, with call-and-response vocals, a very groovy bassline and a few great, soaring instrumental passages. The song premieres in this post — listen below.
Operator Music Band play Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on July 28 with Lisel and Dominic Sen (tickets).
