It’s all pretty cloak and dagger at the moment, but it looks like Simian Mobile Disco will be back with a new album on 14 May. Details are pretty sketchy right now, but their official website has a single page consisting of the word “UNPATTERNS” and the date 14/05/12. They are also streaming a track (or part of a track) called “Fourteenth Principles”. It’s a pretty ethereal, down beat teaser, but you never know quite what to expect from these guys.. it could just as easily break into a scuzzy bleep laden aural assault. You can check it out below. Either way, news of some fresh beats from James Ford and Jas Shaw seeing the light of day is fine by me. I’ll be sure to bring my portable strobe out of retirement before the beginning of May.
