Still coming off his Fear in a Handful of Dust album release, Amon Tobin is introducing his ‘Only Child Tyrant‘ project. Debuting it, the ‘Monkey Box‘ single attaches itself as the first release from the project’s Time To Run album. As the album is coming right out of the gate, you can expect it to be up on July 26.
Taking a look into ‘Monkey Box’, Only Child Tyrant immediately exemplifies the fact it’s based within indie rock. Brushing aggressive, intense and acidic tones, Amon’s new work pushes itself into existence. In the artist’s own words;
“I’ve often made my favorite things when I wasn’t overthinking things. This record came about over a period of time between things I may well have been overthinking. It’s fun to program drums that sound live and fake at the same time, to make synths sound like guitars and have guitars played by robots. My enjoyment of these processes became a complete sound with its own personality, one that needed its own name. I hope you’ll like it as much or at least nearly as much as I did making it.”
Topping off this package of news from the project, Old Child Tyrant is partnering with Bandcamp to press vinyls. ‘Time To Run’ is available for pre-order here. Commenting on it, Amon Tobin exclaimed;
“Over at Nomark we’ve been trying a few different things with releases. What’s been surprising in the best possible way is the enduring love out there for proper LP’s. Really though.. it’s been one of those where it turns out the things we love are what you want too. Brilliant. now, we’re a tiny operation and the logistics for vinyl manufacture are no small task. So imagine how thrilled we were to discover that bandcamp have come up with a solution where I can spend more time making music and you’re not left at the mercy of eBay scalpers for a record we couldn’t afford to press more of. It’s a beautiful thing and I hope you’ll get behind it.”
