Shout Out Out Out Out in March
Reintegration Time is a dense step forward for Shout Out Out Out Out. Produced and engineered by front man Nik Kozub, the second full-length offering from Shout Out Out Out Out demonstrates the band's ongoing obsession and devotion to the world of analog synthesizers (no soft synths or "analog modeling" here, just pure voltage). This is indeed dance music, and this time around it is as friendly to the headphone listener as it is to the DJ.
Along with their inherent electro, house, and acid techno influences, Shout Out Out Out Out put their massive analog synth collection and diverse tastes at the forefront with thick pulsing textures that give serious nods to pioneers like Tangerine Dream and Neu!. Lyrically, Reintegration Time continues with Shout Out Out Out Out's generally bleak world view, this time focusing on internal shortcomings and the disconnect of trying to maintain a balance between normalcy and the absurd.
Joining Shout Out Out Out Out on this release are guest vocalists Cadence Weapon on the acid-heavy rap track 'Coming Home', and San Serac on the weirdo house jam 'One Plus Two Plus Three'.
Normals Welcome Records lets loose Reintegration Time on CD and colossal triple gatefold vinyl edition complete with digital download card on March 3, 2009.
Pre-orders available soon on www.shoutoutoutoutout.com.
