Montreal electro act Saxsyndrum is set to release SXD_EP on November 4 via Art Not Love Records, but you can preview the album in its entirety a week early on Exclaim.ca.
The self-described experimental electronic jazz duo of David Switchenko and Nick Schofield recently signed to their new label and are ready to deliver the follow-up to Future Circus and its remix album.
The new material sees Saxsyndrum toying with sound design, composing half of the songs using saxophone samples and percussion samples for the remaining tracks. The six-song EP was recorded with Radwan Moumneh at Hotel2Tango in the summer of 2014, and the pair credit artists like Pantha du Prince and Four Tet as inspiring their exploratory process of creating new sounds from traditional instruments.
The sonic experimenters are set to take their new work on the road, sharing the bill with Hilotrons for a couple of upcoming Quebec dates. Those are listed below, but you can scroll past them to hear the mesmerizing SXD_EP.
