First off, let’s just acknowledge that this limited edition package comes with a human tooth.  April Fools?  Nope…Sacred Bones.

Benjamin John Power, co-mastermind behind the orgasmicly heavy electronic noise duo Fuck Buttons, ventured out into solo territory in 2010 as Blanck Mass.  His 2011 self-titled full-length was a gorgeous sprawling epic, immersed in layer upon layer of electronic fuzz.  Imagine being slowly eaten alive by a rainbow.  Yeah, it’s that intense.

Power’s new record Dumb Flesh is a reflection on the flaws of the human body.  As Norm MacDonald once said, the odds of you being killed by a terrorist are pretty slim, but the odds of you being attacked by your own heart?…100 per f-ing cent.  His latest track Dead Format is a much more aggressive adrenaline rush, but expect more of his lush ambient soundscapes as well.  This one’s a no-brainer for me, and I’m already figuring out how to make a tooth necklace.

P.S. That f-ing album cover, man.  Is that NSFW?  Is it just a bunch of flesh?  Sweet Moses, what is happening there?
