'A House Full of Garbage' is the second single to be lifted from 10 000 Russos' forthcoming 'Superinertia' LP, due out September 10th on Fuzz Club
Portuguese experimental trio 10 000 Russos are today sharing ‘A House Full Of Garbage’, the second single to be lifted from their forthcoming ‘Superinertia’ LP that’s due out September 10th on Fuzz Club. In support of the new album, which will be their fifth LP to date, 10 000 Russos will be touring across the UK and Europe this Autumn. Arriving off the back of recent single ‘Super Inertia’, you can stream ‘A House Full of Garbage’ and its accompanying video below.
Following on from 2019’s ‘Kompromat’ LP and tour-dates around the UK, Europe and Mexico in support, the Porto-based band describe ‘Superinertia’ as a record addressing the “state of inertia that humans live in the West nowadays. It isn’t a record about the past or future. It’s about now.” The inertia of the album’s title, they say, is one deeply-rooted in the Western condition – in which ‘common sense’ masquerades political impotence, culture is largely dominated by pastiche and nostalgia and life itself is reduced to an endless cycle of work-consume-repeat. Although, for all that ‘Superinertia’ might take aim at a world without motion, the same cannot be said of 10 000 Russos, whose music has always been about as kinetic as it gets.
Across their previous releases the band have ploughed a driving motorik sound that has often drawn comparisons to the likes of Neu!, The Fall and Spacemen 3. On this new album, however, the addition of synth player Nils Meisel (who replaces former bassist Andre Couto) to the line-up also sees the Russos sound itself move into whole new territories. “The synths really opened up the sound of the band and gave more routes for the music to journey down”, drummer and vocalist João Pimenta says. Described by 10 000 Russos as the closest thing they’ve ever done to a pop song, the woozy, meandering psychedelia of ‘A House Full of Garbage’ is a perfect case in point. A hypnotic and slow-burning track, Russos strip things back to just drum machine, atmospheric electronics and jangling guitars.
