Hudson Mohawke is releasing his third album, called 'Cry Sugar', later this summer. Watch a megamix video for the LP and listen to lead single 'Bicstan' below.
Out via Warp Records on 12th August, 'Cry Sugar' is inspired by "apocalyptic" film scores and soundtracks, like the works of the late Vangelis and the John Williams' peak '90s material. According to the press release, the 19-track double-LP "score[s] the twilight of our cultural meltdown."
This isn't Hudson Mohawke's first score-related release of the year; in February his theatrical rework of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde' was performed at Edinburgh's Leith Theatre. He also revived his Valentine's Day Slow Jams mix series for LuckyMe that month.
Listen to the track 'Bicstan' on Bandcamp, and check out the album's megamix video, directed by kingcon2k11.
