Press release: The sixth Von Sleight album, Drop the Space Needle, will be out on 11/11/12 on Fringe Biology Recordings. Tracks from this album were constructed by dropping old works into new environments, making sculptures from heaps of rusted scraps. The sounds range from the pulsing synth-tribal-disco-funk rhythms of the lead cut "We Are Supersonic" to the industrial funk of "Chief Seattle and the B-Ball Caper" to the hypnotic ambient jazz of "King Salmon Needs Another Beer." Instruments employed include the Korg MS-20 and Electribe EA-1 synths, bass guitar, trumpet, 3-stringed and rubber band zithers, voice, natural recordings, electronic drums, and electrified homemade instruments. The "We Are Supersonic" video follows Chief Seattle's voyage to rescue a basketball team on Planet Supersonic in his Space Needle UFO.
