    London-based post-punks Savages and Japanese psych outfit Bo Ningen will release their collaborative record, Words to the Blind, on November 17th via Stolen Recordings/Pop Noire. In anticipation, it’s streaming below via Dazed Digital.

    Words to the Blind was conceived after Savages saw Bo Ningen play a show while they were recording their excellent debut, Silence Yourself. From there, the two groups hit the studio together, drawing inspiration from  Zurich’s Cabaret Voltaire, a club created in 1916 where “artists would experiment with forms of sound poetry and simultaneous poetry.”

    The result of their collaboration is one sprawling, 37-minute track. Billed as a “loose composition based around five chapters,” it features a half-improvised noisy jam with lyrics sung in English by Savages’ frontwoman Jehnny Beth and in Japanese by Bo Ningen’s Taigen Kawabe. While the song does take a while to truly ignite, it’s a freewheeling, aggressive, and compelling piece that shows two bands gelling into one unit. Listen in below.
