I’ve just recently gotten into Intronaut, who are putting out their stellar Valley of Smoke next week. I know I absolutely loved the album and Dan (Dormition) gave it a 5/5 rating. It’s one of the year’s highlights, for sure.
Stereogum are streaming a new track off of that album, the very beautiful “Core Relations,” right here. This song marks a more atmospheric and serene version of Intronaut, but the rest of the album has moments of math-sludge aggression. I know I say this a lot, but this is an album you have to hear.
Valley of Smoke is due out next week, October 12th, on Century Media. You can pre-order it here, with this mindblowing two vinyl and t-shirt bundle. I’d get it if I had spare cash on me. Stupid Rock Band 3 pre-order has taken my wallet hostage. GIVE IT BACK.
