First Listen: Innerpartysystem / Never Be Content
Electronic three-piece Innerpartysystem – Patrick Nissley (vocals), Jared Piccone (drums), and Kris Barman (synth, guitar) – have released their new 6-song EP, Never Be Content, digitally across all platforms today Feb 22, 2011, and physically on March 29, 2011, on Red Bull Records. You can stream the entire EP below for your first listen.
Never Be Content, which introduces an expanded electronic soundscape for the band, was recorded at their home studio in Pennsylvania,
as well as Hoboken, NJ, Los Angeles and London.
The songs on Never Be Content, born near the end of the band’s extensive touring behind their 2008 self-titled debut, reflect an organic shift in their creative output. The punk rock edge of their earlier music falls into the background in this new set of songs and at the forefront is a compelling brand of electronic dance music. Self-described gearheads with an infatuation for synthesizing sounds, Innerpartysytem took off their headphones just long enough to decide on the EP’s title. Beyond that, they could be found with headphones firmly planted against their ears, building, re-tooling, layering, and tinkering with the new songs that have now come to mark an exciting evolution for the band.
