Coconut – March 1st 2010

Archie Bronson Outfit return with their much anticipated new album, Coconut, on March 1st 2010. Coconut is the London based three-piece’s first LP in almost four years and their third album for Domino.

Switching between full on deep-end rock and more reflective, beat-driven numbers, Coconut is a modern psychedelic testament delivering a visceral shot of pleasure. With recording sessions in London and Benton Harbour, Michigan, with production from DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy (LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, Hercules & Love Affair) - Coconut is an album bursting with warped inventiveness and sonic intent.

Initial copies of Coconut will feature an accompanying DVD of videos for the entire album – most of them made by the band, some by artist friends and collaborators - all showcasing Archie Bronson Outfit’s own unique vision. Click here for a sneak preview:

Shark’s Tooth – a heavy psych dancefloor anthem with distorted vocals and an infectious riff - will be released as the first single on 25th February 2010. Archie Bronson Outfit will play the Lexington in London on January 27th (show now sold out) and will tour the UK in March as follows:

Archie Bronson Outfit return with their third album Coconut, released on 1st March 2010

Generating molten heat right from the opening bars of first track Magnetic Warrior, Coconut, the new Archie Bronson Outfit album, is a record full of deep riffs, spaced loops and the sound of a band revelling in both their individuality and intensity. Coconut is a record of barely contained ambition and ecstatic overload. The album was produced by DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy (LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, Hercules & Love Affair) with recording sessions in Michigan, London, and mixing in New York. The result is a wildness of musical vision, given the freedom to be let absolutely loose.

Switching between full on deep-end rock and more reflective, beat-driven, numbers Coconut is a modern psychedelic testament delivering a visceral shot of pleasure. The record’s out and out rockers: Magnetic Warrior, Wild Strawberries, Harness (Bliss), are sweet aural assaults, pushing further and further ahead, leaving swirls of feedback and shredded senses behind. The automated voice on Magnetic Warrior rises from the riffs to repeat “think I’m ready for more, think I’m ready for more” establishing perfectly the Coconut mission statement and mindset from track one.

Elsewhere Coconut moves into the strange, dark, space disco first hinted at on the band’s breakout single Dead Funny. Tracks like Shark’s Tooth, Hoola and especially Chunk take ABOS way with a groove to some awesomely disturbed and euphoric places. These tracks are stripped back to a head-nodding pulse, and fixed in a pinpoint rhythmic dexterity and reflexive, sensory percussion. This is real after dark music. Archie Bronson Outfit’s spaced funk-not-funk is a portal to some strange nocturnal location.

Few tracks have ever sounded so literal as You Have a Right to a Mountain Life – opening with the war cry squall of psychedelic cave dwellers, before breaking down into a monster Cro-Magnon boogie. Bite It and Believe It and Hunt You Down sound like almost-laments offering changes in pace and a different psychic mood. Coconut concludes with the unhinged euphoria of Run Gospel Singer, ending on a high, the journey completed.

Archie Bronson Outfit have recorded a new sonic testament for a new decade’s dawn.

Get your freak on.
