To paraphrase the younger Bono, ‘there’s been a lot of talk about this album. Maybe, maybe too much talk’.
Eskimo’s Joe’s sixth album, WASTELANDS, is only just landing, but has been lauded for some time now, from its highly successful Pozible crowd-funding campaign – an important part of the story, but not the whole story – to the early word that the band had gone… electronic?
Rest assured, there’s always more textures to any story, including this one. This ain’t Electro Joe. “As far as our music’s concerned it’s more of an electronic album,” Stu MacLeod says by way of qualification. “There’s drum machines, there’s a hell of a lot of synths. But at the same time there’s a lot of organic grounding.”
Having recorded the entire album in their own studio, for themselves and their fans, with music industry politics not in the mindset, Eskimo Joe have gotten back to the ethos that set them on this 16-year odyssey in the first place.
“I think that is something we’ve managed to create for ourselves with WASTELANDS, which is a really positive thing.” Wastelands due for release September 20th 203.
