Primus The Desaturating Seven LP (Clear with Rainbow Splatter Vinyl)
Carnivalesque Goblin Rock On Clear with Rainbow Splatter Vinyl LP!
Primus returns with their first new album of original music since 2011's Green
Naugahyde in what can only be described as GOBLIN ROCK!
Primus adapted an obscure children's book into a wild musical opus with their
ninth LP, The Desaturating Seven, via ATO Records.
"The experimental rock trio tease the record's carnivalesque atmosphere with
lead single "The Seven," an ever-mutating epic filled with marching rhythms,
jarring tempo shifts and a prog-funk groove (cleverly set in 7/8) that recalls
early Eighties King Crimson.
""It definitely has that Discipline feel," bassist-singer Les Claypool tells
Rolling Stone, referencing King Crimson's 1981 LP. "But it's also very
reminiscent of [Primus' 1991 track] 'Jerry Was a Racecar Driver,' that tapping
and the syncopated bit with me and [guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde]. But all that
probably comes from the Crimson influence as well because Crimson was definitely
a big influence on the three of us.
"The Desaturating Seven is the band's first studio album of original material
since 2011's Green Naugahyde – and their first with LaLonde and drummer Tim
Alexander since 1995's Tales From the Punchbowl. The LP is based on Italian
writer and illustrator Ul de Rico's trippy 1978 book, The Rainbow Goblins, which
Claypool's wife introduced him to "many, many years ago." The couple, struck by
de Rico's "vibrant and intense and eerie and somewhat creepy" artwork, used to
read the book to their children – and Claypool earmarked the title for a
potential musical project..." - rollingstone.com, July 2017
