The Velvet Teen - All Is Illusory

The Velvet Teen's first album in nine years.  Available for streaming on NPR before the official release on June 30th.  I'm about three tracks in and lurving it.

The i.l.y's - I've always been good at true love

Free project posted by the Death Grips twitter/website.  No info released. Guessing it involves Nick Reinhart (Tera Melos/Death Grips) in multiple capacities, keyboard player Andy Morin and Zach Hill.  Maybe Barney the Dinosaur?  Methinks MC Ride didn't show up to practice one day and this happened.  Then again I haven't really heard him not yelling before...

The album itself is a mutated garage sounding album with lots of modulated vocals/keys/strings.  Nine songs just under thirty total minutes, but it's a quick trip worth taking again.
