"Revenge of the Smoke Ghost Pt1"
Just so we're clear, this track doesn't appear in this same form on Distraction. Rather, it comes from a digital bonus collection packaged with the record that features "extended session" segments -- that is, the longer jams that were chopped up to make the 96 pieces of the album proper.
"Revenge of the Smoke Ghost Pt1" is a dark and gloomy new wave groove that's almost six minutes in length, with a pulsing baseline blanketed in a dense wash of reverb-soaked keys. It's entirely instrumental and features drummer Jakob Thiesen from Whisper Room, Nadja, Students. Not much happens over the course of the track, and we're guessing that this is one of the "psychedelic grooves" that the album promises to offer.
The Spectrum of Distraction will be available as a double CD and digital download on January 17 via Robotic Empire.
