THE SUICIDE OF WESTERN CULTURE | Irregular (Live)
“With just some toy keyboards and a bunch of second hand pedals, these two sci-fi individuals decided to create their songs from the room of a hostel for students in London, trying to reproduce sounds from those bands they admired in the 90s:Godspeed You Black Emperor, Disco Inferno, Mogwai, Flying Saucer Attack, Tortoise…an ode to the analog power”.
The Suicide Of Western Culture is no longer a secretive duo. Their eponymous first album was named the best Spanish electronic music album by press, public and critics in 2010. Since then, they’ve been touring around half of the world (SXSW, FYF Festival, The Great Escape, Eurosonic, C/O Pop, Wilsonic, Popkomm, Primavera Sound, Sónar, Rockmotives, Vienna Electronic Beats, LeFest, Canadian Music Week, etc.) and supported artists such as Animal Collective, Orbital, Cut Copy, Clark, etc.
Their music is worldwide digitally distributed by The Orchard. Have released so far a couple of long plays: “The Suicide Of Western Culture” (irregularcd04) and a “Remixes” (irregularcd06) compilation , besides some remixes to bands like Autumn Comets / Russian Red, Lasers, etc.
Now, it is time to strike back. Following their epic debut album, The Suicide of Western Culture, returns to bring you their haunting album “Hope Only Brings Pain¨ (Irregular, 2013). An unstoppable combination of lo-fi electronics, noisy-analog beats and emotional post-rock to take you on a journey from the dark to the uplifting.
