It’s a big week for Norwegian mad avant-rock scientists, ÅRABROT, as the outfit releases their captivating You Bunch Of Idiots EP this week as they simultaneously traverse halfway around the globe to begin their intense North American tour. To begin the celebratory madness, Invisible Oranges is now streaming the entire EP in its entirety.
The third in a trio of themed EPs, You Bunch Of Idiots is the newest addition to the powerful catalog of Norwegian Grammy Award-winning experimental rock cult, ÅRABROT. A ferocious blast of twisted noise rock and poetic rants, the band here drops six tracks of hook-laden noise rock with sludge, industrial, and rock ‘n’ roll flourishes, through it all spit-flecked spout-offs, hissing fits, and bellowing which draws you in and keeps you there. Recorded and mixed by Milton von Krogh at Djura Missionshus, Djura, Sweden, and Taakeheimen Lydrike, Oslo, Norway, with vocal overdubs recorded by Karin Park at Djura Missionshus, Djura, Sweden, and mastering handled by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering, You Bunch Of Idiots sees the band at the top of apex of their creative intensity to date. Invisible Oranges is now playing the entire EP as its release date looms, issuing in part, “Whether you think ÅRABROT is a triumph of high art from the lowest places or just a noise-rock mistake… there’s no doubt that their music is loud, heavy, disturbing, and also entertaining in a creepy insane genius sort of way.”
