On October 18th, Ohio based experimental three-piece Drose are set to release a new album titled boy man machine+ via Computer Students. The album features the songwriting and voice of Dustin Rose

This release is a combination of previously released and unreleased music. In the additional notes for this release, it states that the ” album was written and recorded during the design and construction of a race car at the Center for Automotive Research in Columbus, Ohio, USA. The facility was home to constant manufacturing activity and cavernous ambient spaces where the machines, instruments and vocals were recorded. The main studio for live instruments and vocals was underneath a sectioned steel floor in a heavy-duty chassis dynamometer facility. Accessing the underside of the floor required a forklift to move one of the floor sections. This confined space was affectionately referred to as “the hole.” The album also showcases CNC mills and lathes, robotic welding, pneumatics and other mechanical sonic sources to represent the voice of the machine.”
 
Taking the previous into consideration, one can only imagine what soundscapes were created in such an atmosphere. Having listened to the album myself, it’s quite extraordinary. 
 
Today we premiere one of the unreleased tracks off the album titled ‘a room’. Listen to it here:
