Canadian experimental rockers Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (SMZ) will release their brand new album, Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything, on January 21st via Constellation. We previously heard “Austerity Blues”, their scorching take on a run-down world full of injustice. Now, the collective pay tribute to the late Brooklyn rapper and Pro Era/Joey Bada$$ associate, Capital Steez, on the dark and elegiac “Rains Thru the Roof at Thee Grande Ballroom (For Capital Steez)”.
This time around, the band demonstrate power not in volume, nor vigor, but in their quivering and mournful spaces of near-silence. Listen to it below, via Belgian radio show Sterrenplaten (it’s the first track in the mix).
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything Tracklist:
01. Fuck Get Free (For the Island of Montreal)
02. Austerity Blues
