The Internet was the talk of the Internet this week. Rumors abounded that Kanye and Jay-Z will release their long-delayed joint album online on Monday; Björk mused about never releasing another album in physical form ever again; and Prince vowed to stop recording all together until the Internet ceases to exist and things go back to the way they were in 1986 (or something like that).
Thank god for SSION‘s Cody Critcheloe who walked the talk and just went and released his band’s new album BENT online FOR FREE. F*ck all that privileged indecision! The New York-via-Kansas City group also recently performed the album as some sort of concept electro-popera co-starring Sky Ferreira and other celebrities at the MoMA PS1. Critcheloe describes the lead single “Psy-Chic” as “a new gay luv anthem about crystal meth and buying stuff.” Listen to it below and download the whole shebang here.
SSION performs at Toronto’s SHAME party on Sunday, July 3. Full details and ticket info via FB.
