Dumb Flesh is the second album by Blanck Mass and marks the switch from the Rock Action Records label to Sacred Bones Records. He wrote "Power's strengths come out at once: dark noise gives way to a pounding rhythm which, in turn, melts into a tapestry of airy synths". Dumb Flesh received ample critical acclaim and it was toured extensively all throughout 2015.
Sacred Bones are set to release Dumb Flesh, an album by Blanck Mass. Behind the moniker is Benjamin John Power of Fuck Buttons. Listen to the first single, Dead Format below.
Fans of Fuck Buttons, rejoice – we now have two acts for the price of one. The second album by Blanck Mass (aka Benjamin Power of FB) largely supplants the hazy synth wash of its predecessor with a supercharged sound that has much in common with his main band. In fact, in a blind taste test, it may be hard to distinguish the two, but that’s hardly cause for complaint.
With 'Dumb Flesh,' the Fuck Buttons member finds solace in chaos. We asked him how he got there. When Benjamin John Power-half of the groundbreaking electronic noise duo Fuck Buttons-unveiled his first release as Blanck Mass in 2011, the differences between his band’s breakthrough 2009 sophomore release Tarot Sport and his solo project were striking. While Tarot Sport arrived as one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking releases of the decade, Blanck Mass was its introverted companion piece, an ambient, beat-free affair that maintained Fuck Buttons’ predilection for pageantry, but expressed in the most patient manner possible.
Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). The frailty of the human body naturally became a resonant and inescapable part of the album's gestation. We are at the mercy of our genetic heritage everyday.
