Australia’s off-kilter breed of avant-psych weirdos, Tropical Fuck Storm, have just announced their second studio album Braindrops.
Braindrops is the follow up album to Tropical Fuck Storm's 2018 debut A Laughing Death In Meatspace. Based in the Australian outback—where they are free to make as much noise as they like—the album was written and recorded in their home 'Dodgy Brothers Studio' in regional Victoria.
“I've invented fake news as a genre of music,” Liddiard states on the new album. Braindrops overflows with compelling sounds and visions that reflect the often dark and fractured reality of life on planet Earth as we hurtle toward environmental and social decay at a frighteningly rapid clip.
A recurring theme on the album concerns the various ways the human brain can be manipulated and controlled for exploitative gain. Braindrops is a jarring and exhilarating experience, full of pulsating grooves, black humor, dissonant experimentation, and unsettling dystopian plotlines—a truly unrelenting work, from an unrelenting musical ensemble.
Released on August 23, the album is now available for pre-order on digital, CD, Hot Magenta Vinyl, and the limited VIP edition pictured below. Check out the first song, "Paradise".
