New Jersey post-punk artist Jason Bonthron has recently released his new full-length CD "Cyclops". While the release was written by Bonthron, it features a number of musicians and instruments, ranging from two vocalists and two drummers two guitars to violin, saxophone and dulcimer. Musically, they take cues from acts such as The Talking Heads, Joy Division, and The Flaming Lips, although I recommend listening to "Skate Rat", "Not Today" and "Liquid Metal Hydrogen" to get a sense of the variety on "Cyclops". Cold, electronic meanderings meet up with upbeat funk and rock n' roll to create a hybrid sound.
Uniquely, Jason is offering "Cyclops" as a zip download for free at his official website. Check out "Skate Rat" below courtesy of Youtube.
