THE JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION ARE HEADING TO OZ

TO SUPPORT NEW ALBUM

New York garage icons The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion are heading back to Australia in August to promote their latest album Freedom Tower.

The album, which is out now via Rocket, is a despondent mess, a sonic representation of the assorted fringe personalities that make New York City the infamous concrete jungle.

 

The album was recorded in the Daptone House Of Soul in Bushwick and mixed with cult hip-hop figure Alap Momin.

 

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion has a unique relationship with Australia, predominantly due to Australia’s longstanding fascination with garage rock. The band’s bizarre performance on Recovery back in the 90s has gone down in Australia music folklore with a rock and roll demonstration that’s as energetic as any other your likely to see.
