Factory Floor - 'Fall Back' [Listen]
2013 is set to be the year of Factory Floor, what with the promise of their highly anticipated debut album that is set for a release on DFA.
'Fall Back' is the first new material from the three-piece since 2011's incendiary 'Two Different Ways', though a fabulously barbarous remix from visceral-techno diety Perc amongst others of the track surfaced last summer.
Once again the post eight minute mark is reached as the unrelenting momentum of a krautrock bulldozer veers onto a disco dancefloor, and is as wonderfully hypnotic and devastating as that scene suggests. The laconic spoken word vocals teases, between an ecstatic fecundity that the track beholds - yup it's a truly chthonic entity.
