Last week we introduced you to NY indie label GODMODE, who have been putting out a stream of great releases recently, including a label compilation which featured incredible debut recordings from Shamir and Fitness. Now we’ve got another reason to thank GODMODE, as a number of artists on the label, including Fitness, Yvette, Soft Lit, Fasano, and Nick Sylvester, have teamed up as Montreal Sex Machine.
The GODMODE supergroup makes dusty but danceable music that, according to label owner Nick Sylvester, aims to pick up where Rolling Stones left off with “Some Girls” and “Emotional Rescue.” Sounding like LCD Soundsystem’s less electronic moments with an extra helping of grit and post-punk swagger, “Blackout” is a propulsive, impressive mix of influences.
Both Montreal Sex Machine and Shamir’s live debut performances will be on June 15 at Muchmore’s in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, so make sure to put that in your calendar if you’re based in New York.
The debut Montreal Sex Machine 12″ will be out June 15. Listen to “Blackout” below.
