All Leather "An Insufficient Apology b/w Luang Prabang"
Get psyched, because Justin Pearson (Retox, The Locust), Nathan Joyner (Hot Nerds), and Jung Sing (Maniqui Lazer) are collaborating again in the form of All Leather after a prolonged absence, and the fruits of their labor have brought a new single that picks up right where they left off, maintaining the warped-apocalyptic-electronic genre they've already claimed, but with what is quite possibly an even darker and heavier sound than in previous releases. Side A features the title track, "An Insufficient Apology," with Pearson's aggressive howls over a low, steady, mechanical beat interspersed with high-pitched, robotic synth dissonance. The B-side includes a cover of Dave Van Ronk's "Luang Prabang," covering a tongue-in-cheek, American-folk protest song originally written about the Vietnam War from All Leather's unique perspective: with heavy distortion, snarling grit, and electronic grime. Limited edition of 500 copies.<br>
