Announcing: Lloyd Miller and The Heliocentrics (and a free mp3!)

A while ago, we posted a back and forth that we had with Dr. Lloyd Miller about the past, future and ethics of rhythm. Well, now we have something better – his collaborative album with The Heliocentrics is set for release on Strut on August 2nd (well, the actual vinyl will come out on August 31st).

It’s a monster of an album, inspired by Millers’ frequent tours and ceaseless study of Middle Eastern music and culture, full of the rock solid rhythms that the Heliocentrics are known for and blessed by Miller’s genius on an array of instruments that would cause even the most talented of jazzers to pause. Download an example now – one that’s much funkier than anything we would have expected Miller to allow, but one that speaks volumes to his – and The Heliocentrics – talents.
