The Midweekly – Carpenter Brut

The Midweekly is our column from Mike Jeffers; lead singer of Chicago punk stalwarts SCRAMmusic junkie and all around righteous dude.

Roaring out of the underworld in a retro hot rod, transforming into a starship bound for the cosmos, driven by a neon shadow. The soundtrack to this scene is Leather Terror, the latest from French synth lord Carpenter Brut. Somewhere between techno and metal, this record throbs with electro riffs and pounds with double kick beats. There’s an even darker theme than the music behind this release that involves violence, revenge, and toxicity (it’s the second installment in a trilogy to be exact). Joining CB on this horror inspired ride is a great collection of guests such as Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Queen), Ben Koller (Converge), Johannes Andersson (Tribulation), and fellow darksynth makers Gunship. Careful when jamming this one in your car at night. Supernatural forces might take over and send you chasing something imaginary into the darkness.
