boy man machine+ is the new release by Drose, an experimental rock band from Columbus Ohio, featuring the songwriting and voice of Dustin Rose.
It’s the first in our Anatomical Reissues series, which reissues albums with highly conceptual design, presentation and packaging.
The music explores the torments of sentience through the sound of machines across four uncompromising sides of vinyl, featuring slashing lines from guitarist Gregory Packet and bizarre drum patterns from John Mengerink.
The album also showcases CNC mills and lathes, robotic welding, pneumatics and other mechanical sonic sources to represent the voice of the machine. The results are harsh, bewildering and strangely beautiful.
It was written and recorded during the design and construction of a race car at the Center for Automotive Research in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
— boy man machine+ combines Drose’s 2016 album of the same name with their debut 7” a voice, and an assemblage of unreleased tracks — all freshly remastered by veteran engineer Carl Saff.
