Gomez - A New Tide



Gomez A New Tide
Gomez - A New Tide
(CD/LP) ATO Records, 2009-03-30

A NEW TIDE marks a return to the always-freewheeling British band’s more experimental roots, with songs like “Win Park Slope” and “Airstream Driver” evincing a spirit born of boundless imagination and a longstanding collaborative relationship.
With the band members now scattered across two continents, from Brooklyn to Brighton, England, early tracks were written and recorded individually and then merged online. The process allowed for an open and adaptive songwriting approach, the material taking on its ultimate shape when Gomez officially convened in studios in Chicago and Charlottesville, VA, with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron and Wine, Counting Crows).

Press Release :
Gomez has revealed details of its highly anticipated new album, A NEW TIDE. The eagerly awaited collection – the band’s sixth studio outing and follow-up to 2006’s breakthrough HOW WE OPERATE – arrives in stores and at all online retailers on March 31st.

A NEW TIDE marks a return to the always-freewheeling British band’s more experimental roots, with songs like “Win Park Slope” and “Airstream Driver” evincing a spirit born of boundless imagination and a longstanding collaborative relationship.
With the band members now scattered across two continents, from Brooklyn to Brighton, England, early tracks were written and recorded individually and then merged online. The process allowed for an open and adaptive songwriting approach, the material taking on its ultimate shape when Gomez officially convened in studios in Chicago and Charlottesville, VA, with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron and Wine, Counting Crows).

As ever, a wide range of styles is incorporated into Gomez’s matchless musical brew. Flavors of Delta blues, psychedelia, and Krautrock all come into play, resulting in a musically mischievous and remarkably forward-thinking collection. In short, A NEW TIDE is Gomez at their inimitable, incomparable best.

A NEW TIDE also sees Gomez accompanied by a number of illustrious guest musicians, including vocalist Amy Milan (of Stars/Broken Social Scene fame), bassist Josh Abrams (The Roots, Sam Prekop, Godspeed You Black Emperor!), cellist Oliver Krauss (David Gray, Paul Weller, Beth Orton), and multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie of Brooklyn’s world renowned Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.

The record will be out in the States on March 31, in the UK and Europe March 30, and in Australia on March 28. More details on the release after the New Year!
