Strange Weather Isn’t It
s got a Berlin record in them and I guess we just wanted to see whatours would sound like,” !!!
s lead singer Nic Offer says, with tongue partially incheek, of the group
s fourth album, Strange Weather, Isn
t It? Following in thefootsteps of artists like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Depeche Mode, who haveflocked to Berlin in order to mainline the city
s legendary dark energy, !!! traveledto the German capital to produce a record that is simultaneously brooding andsomehow their poppiest, most immediate record yet. !!! has also managed tocreate the best distillation of the chaos, fun and intensity of !!!'s live show yet.Strange Weather, Isn
t It? was co-produced by the band with Eric Broucek, whoused to be the house engineer for DFA Records. “We used everything we could – MacGyvered it together with a popsicle stick and a rubber band to make it work –and Eric was definitely instrumental in making that happen,” says Offer. The resultis an album that is leaner and more detailed than any of !!!
s previous albums. “Inthe early days we
d put something deep in the mix, so that kids on acid could hearit the 20th time they listened to it,” says Offer. “Now we
ve learned how to makerecords better. It
s like the deep techno you hear in Berlin; it
s molded down to itsmost basic essence, almost like a sculpture that you keep working on to make itboth denser and clearer at the same time.” Offer pauses for a moment to considerwhat he
s saying. “Don
t get me wrong, though, you should still check the recordout on acid. Trust me.”- Press features & reviews already confirmed for August in FADER, Spin, andVillage Voice.- Pitchfork has announced the album and will continue to cover the band as thealbum rolls out.
