New Fuck Buttons


"Surf Solar" is the first single to be taken from the new Fuck Buttons album, Tarot Sport. The single arrives physically on September 14, while the Andrew Weatherall-produced album is set to release on October 20 via ATP Recordings.

The "Surf Solar" single sounds like dance noise, almost as if My Bloody Valentine dropped ecstasy at a rave. I like to put on Fuck Buttons when I'm doing some tedious task, like editing some big spreadsheet, because it melts away the time. They will tour the US this fall.
from Prefix
"It sounds oddly similar to micro-sample artists like the Field -- it's based on a repeating vocal sample, around which synthesizer lines slowly build and coalesce. Fuck Buttons have always had electronic leanings, but here they throw everything else out the window and focus exclusively on electronic elements. We'll have to wait until the LP drops to see if this holds true for all their new material, but it's an interesting left turn from Street Horrrsing."
