Los Angeles / New York duo ALPACA announce their forthcoming sophomore release, a four song EP titled Post Empire.
Recorded throughout 2013 and 2014, the two man electronic/rock outfit comprised of Allen Blickle and Justin Nuckols explore a slightly darker territory on their latest effort. The proggy sensibilities are more apparent in writing less conventional song structures, and with increased melancholy compared to their debut album, Demimonde, while retaining the catchy elements that established ALPACA as one to watch.
Blickle’s bombastic and technical signature drumming style that he grew throughout his tenure with rock group Baroness is shining through on these harder groove tracks, while Nuckols’ at times dissonant guitar style and vocal performance resonate as mature.
Comments Blickle on the release:
“Post Empire in essence portrays a present picture of our personalities musically and contextually. Exploring new territory for every record we work on is what excites us to move forward in our musical relationship.”
Post Empire will be released digitally via Robotic Empire on August 26th, 2014. The EP is now available for pre-order on iTunes worldwide:
