In continuing his solo Fiepblatter Catalogue series, the incomparable Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars, Microstoria) will release his new album Spectric Acid Fiepblatter Catalogue #5 on August 25th. Following his acclaimed fourth installment Felder, as well as collaborations with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Kid Millions, and The National, Werner's Spectric Acid summons flux and fragmentation, building up locomotive beat structures around the correlation of musical spectra.
As all of Werner's solo efforts have pushed beyond his previous boundaries, the frequencies, timbres, and tones of Spectric Acid were deemed untranslatable to analog formats, and will only be available via CD. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dub-plates & Mastering in Berlin, Becker said the intense nature of the album meant that to master for LP would “mutilate the spectrum and phase of the material.” Jan St. Werner's band of nearly two decades, Mouse On Mars, will be releasing a new album on Thrill Jockey in early 2018.
Spectric Acid's first single "Gourd Skin Particles" is streaming now on our mixtape, and you can also add it to your Spotify playlist if that's your thing: https://open.spotify.com/album/6G4kOXCeapMVifNBFa0UGN
