FINALLY HERE! Digital Leather's half human, half machine masterpiece!
Half home recordings and half recorded live at Gonerfest, this is no ballerina wilting flower bedroom electronic "punk." This punk can take your head off.
Massive American promotional tour starts soon!
2002 Digital Leather were two young men playing keyboards: DL
Mastermind Shawn Foree and Ryan Wong (Destruction Unit, Tokyo Electron,
Reatards). Electronic karate chops and drill sergeant drum
simulators created fuzzed out synth punk at warehouse punk shows to
punk rock kids that hated keyboards and hated Digital Leather. They
then had their faces melted. Several similar shows played a role,
directly or indirectly, in shaping an underground music revolution.
forward several years – and Digital Leather has become a shape shifting
force in the new "it" genre of synth punk. With a handful of sold out
singles and LPs under his leather jock strap, Shawn Foree is now
preparing his magic wand for the masses. He's traded his synthesizer
for a guitar, and Ryan Wong for a full band. He's still recording songs
himself in a bedroom in Arizona. He brings his band and the a disc of
recordings to Memphis, TN for Gonerfest 2, then drops a sonic A bomb of
a set at the Buccaneer Lounge in the middle of the afternoon. Luckily
it is all captured on multi-track by a crack guerilla recording team.
Home recordings from that time become Side A to SORCERER; Side B is the
live recording. Layered synthetic sounds come together with stark beats
and dry vocals to create a lonely mechanical epic that reminds us of
man's impending doom. Chillingly delicate and abrasively aggressive,
SORCERER masterfully negotates the spaces between minimal electronic
music and ferocious synth punk.
Phazers are set to stun.
The future is here.
