The most profound concept I accepted in the past year is that every moment, every experience, is a step. It’s so easy to get caught up in doubt and feelings of stagnancy; it’s only natural when we live at a time where most of our cultures are obsessed with the concept of progress. We need to feel like we’re moving at all times, or we feel like we’re achieving nothing. But when you realize that even now, in this moment, while you’re reading this, you’re taking a step on your path, you come that much closer to appreciating your present. So in reading how BRUIT≤ came to create their new album The Machine Is Burning And Now Everyone Knows It Could Happen Again, I realize again that how I experience today, listening to their album, has a massive but as yet unknown impact on my future. If I don’t appreciate what I’m learning in each moment of my life, it will take me that much longer to learn. And the music that BRUIT≤ has created here is transcendental and gives me no other option beyond sitting down and listening and letting my mind wander silently encompassed by their breathtaking sound. The new album is out via Elusive Sound on April 2nd – pre-order it here. Right now we’re honored to be sharing the full thing with you below. Make the most of the time you spend with it.
This album was a long process of doubt and creation where we tried to push our limits. We put in all the musical knowledge we have collected over the years. All those years learning music on our own, writing classical music scores, making amplifiers scream in squats, tinkering with ambient tapes all night long… All these moments, we know today, were just the introduction to the process of creating this album.
