MP3: Boris

    Mixing a driving beat, punk riffs, church bells, synthesizers, and a soft coo from the singer, in Japanese no less, doesn't exactly sound like a recipe for success, but Boris makes it work in their new single, "Spoon." The song, off their astutely titled new album, New Album, is a smorgasbord of sound and noise that, if left in lesser hands, could leave a listener reeling. But Boris' digits are finely tuned and perfectly capable of guiding us through the chaotic sonic mix.

    New Album, out on 11/25, is not totally new. The LP offers new takes on songs off of the band's previous two albums, Heavy Rocks and Attention Please, plus a couple of new tracks thrown in for good measure. In support of New Album, Boris is also headlining a slew of shows around the U.S. Check out dates and "Spoon" below.
