OUT NOW: Mother Cyborg ‘Pressure Systems’ [pxnklxzrd]
“Phuturistic” – Joe Stannard, The Wire
Pressure Systems is the début album by Detroit’s Mother Cyborg. It launches at El Club tonight.
“A trip through Nucera’s multifaceted musical influences — from Chicago-style footwork to house and global bass to Cumbia — the album is her vision of a cyborg’s journey to consciousness. It’s as grand as it is cellular, a moving opus to the power of both personal self-realization and the science of cell regeneration as it occurs in a moving body — all in the context of science fiction, the perfect genre to explore the tech-infused world of electronic music” – Ana Gavrilovska, Detroit Metro Times.
The album release party is to be hosted by Rolling Stone pick Tunde Olaniran and features a stellar Detroit/NYC lineup in support: DJ Ripley, MPeach, Britney Stoney and Techno Poetics. Childcare will be available on-site. Mother Cyborg’s visuals on the night will be programmed by CaliXta and there will be lasers.
