Holy balls—new Cynic, dudes! Regular readers know how I feel about the neverending wow of this band, from my early|elliptical review of Traced in Air to interviews and live coverage (some of which still lurks unreleased …hmm). Plus, I’m actually wearing one of their dang shirts right now:
But anyway, watch/listen to this teaser for their forthcoming album Carbon-Based Anatomy. Paul beautifully, mysteriously calls out “the longing never ends—not while you’re human” and I’m pretty sure I hear a sitar at the end amid emerging piano; in the middle, it sounds reminiscent of “King of Those Who Know” to these ears. All with a sweet psychedelic vibe, too, I still haven’t heard Re-Traced to this day, and am standoffish for many reasons, but this really excites me. The new EP is slated to drop on 11-11-11 via Season of Mist.
