Roll the Dice - Calling all workers (The Leaf Label)
We've mentioned Swedish duo Roll the Dice more than once recently, and now they've released the first track from their upcoming new album (In dust on The Leaf Label, Sept 12). It's an instrumental tune, Calling all workers, and features intoxicating layers of field recordings (the clarion call of a ringing bell), busy bass grooves and stately piano and vintage synth. It really is brilliant. The accompanying film by Frode Fjerdingstad uses an unexpectedly rural/seaside setting, but a close-up on the relentless industry of ants in the undergrowth recalls the "workers" of the title.
And you can download it for free here. I haven't heard the whole album yet but on the basis of this it could be something.
