Published Nov 02, 2015Experimental Montreal crew Technical Kidman recently delivered a taste of their latest material with the song "Try," and now Exclaim! is pleased to premiere the full album stream of the band's debut record, Something Stranger Coming on the Horizon.
Blending progressive rock roots with psychedelic electronica vibes, the inspiration behind the new album began with a box of VHS tapes of '80s and '90s Quebecois television ads. A similar retro aesthetic permeates the 10-song offering, from the aggressive percussive ring to opening tracks "King" and "Try" to the soaring synth sounds on "Fractions" and the dark bombast of "Voyager" and "Tapes & Codes."
The album officially arrives on November 6 and will be available at the group's Bandcamp page. For now, though, scroll past Technical Kidman's upcoming tour dates to give the album an early listen.
