It's been long overdue, but MYTY KONKEROR's first full-length, I miss the future. is now available from Twin Lakes. Recorded between June 2008 and February 2010, this record marks a departure from the band's earlier stripped-down sound as a two-piece to embrace a more expansive approach with the addition of lap steel guitarist Jon Schlesinger. The result is a Copernican meditation in the form of blow yr head off rock, sludge oozing from the sonic scrap metal this band is known for.
Eschewing principles of mass-production, the band contacted New Zealand's Peter King, who uses his own custom-modified lathes to cut the records to what is actually a clear, kind of polycarbonate plastic. We chose to do a limited run of 30 this way because we wanted the album to stay as close to human hands as possible throughout the entire making of it.
