Blanck Mass

Odd Scene/Shit Luck

£13.99 £20.99

The first Blanck Mass non-album single since the 2016 release of the majestic D7-D5 will be a surprise to some. The crunching sonic twin punch of both cuts are actually in keeping with the Blanck Mass aesthetic, at the harder edge of his previous work, and then some. As the man himself explains: “I grew up playing in punk and hardcore bands so this is no new venture for me, but perhaps as far as Blanck Mass released material goes Odd Scene / Shit Luck might be the snottiest. Here we have a couple of anti-macho pop songs about a pair of walking hardons I surreptitiously observed at a truck stop whilst I was out touring last year.

These two tracks have been recorded specifically with RSD in mind, and were committed to tape in the space of a frenzied two day session in January 2018. Neither track will appear on any Blanck Mass album. They are in a style that is not normally associated with Blanck Mass. BM wanted to do something special and as RSD is a special day for all music fans and collectors of one off releases by their favourite artists, this is the perfect release date.

This serves as a quick fire follow up to the recent remix EP, and couldn’t be further from that experimental foray into the collaborative experience. Here he goes it alone, and the observational sub-text informs the two most powerful tracks of Blanck Mass’ career

1. Odd Scene (5:21)
2. Shit Luck (2:43)
