DOOMSQUAD >> “Solar Ass”

Doomsquad

Our favourite electro-trance, psychedelic dance family, Doomsquad release their new album, Total Time in just under two months time (arriving on April 29 via Hand Drawn Dracula), and recently shared the record’s first single, “Solar Ass”, “…written as a love song to a donkey, a song for paying respect to the smaller, under-appreciated elements that carry us through our contemporary lives.”

The Blumas siblings, Trevor, Jaclyn, and Allie Blumas, say that Total Time, inspired by some of their favourite artists, was written and recorded in the New Mexican desert, a harsh yet beautiful landscape that inspired the album’s sound: “…dark, pulsating beats interspersed with hypnotic, incantatory jams.” Once they brought the record back home to Toronto, Doomsquad brought in a bevy of collaborators, including the legendary Mary Margaret O’Hara, who added her distinctive vocals to the song “The Very Large Array”. Also on the record are its producer Graham Walsh, who added bas and layers of effects, Fucked Up’s Mike Haliechuk playing guitars, noise experimenter David Foster (aka HUREN) added vocals on “Russian Gaze”, Colin Fisher and Brandon Valdivia of Not the Wind, Not the Flag shared their instrumental talents, and twins Josh and Jesse Hasko of North America, are credited as a “crucial part of Total Time” as well; this summer the Haskos are becoming members of Doomsquad’s live show.
