Already known for their prodigious work-ethic, the band will then release a further four albums in 2017 - details of which will be announced in due course. Talking about the making of Flying Microtonal Banana, Eric Moore of the band said:
Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal. The record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna.
Shimmering, hypnotic and propulsive and powered along, as ever, by the metronomic beat of two drummers, Flying Microtonal Banana takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, Nonagon Infinity which was released earlier this year. Trance like, in parts clipped and concise yet deeply psychedelic, it reveals yet another musical side to a band seemingly in perpetual motion.
