Portland noise metal duo the Body have announced their next album. I’ve Seen All I Need to See is out January 29, 2021 via Thrill Jockey. Ahead of the record, they’ve shared lead single “A Lament,” which you can hear below via Bandcamp.
The new album includes occasional contributions from vocalist/pianist Chrissy Wolpert and vocalist Ben Eberle in addition to the Body’s core duo of Chip King and Lee Buford. I’ve Seen All I Need to See was mastered by Matt Colton (Aphex Twin, New Order, Sunn O))), Sumac) and engineered by Seth Manchester.
“It’s a meditation on distortion,” Seth Manchester said in a press release. “We tried pushing the limits of each piece of gear in the studio to hear what its breaking point sounded like and then recorded it—even feeding the console back on itself during one particular live take.”
Matt Colton added: “The distortion has this ability to envelope you, and not push you away. It has this strange kind of beautiful timbre…once you give into the sheer power of it, and let it take you on a ride then it becomes this whole other kind of sonic experience.”
