Just announced as FBi Radio’s Album of the Week, black midi have released their debut album Schlagenheim (Rough Trade Records).
Watch the surreal visual for new single ‘Ducter‘ below.
Over the past many months, black midi – Geordie Greep (vocals/guitar), Matt Kwasniewski-Kelvin(vocals/guitar), Cameron Picton (vocals/bass), and Morgan Simpson (drums) – have built a reputation for their dynamic, collaborative energy and uncompromising live shows. Their songs are slippery creatures and they play them as a musical unit that’s constantly in a state of flux and development. Schlagenheim, “A rousing debut that constantly eschews genre conventions” (Uncut), was recorded with Speedy Wunderground producer Dan Carey. Guided by Carey’s no-nonsense approach, the band hunkered down at Mr. Dan’s studio in London, tracking the bulk of the album in just five days.
