If you’re not familiar with Maserati, they’re a band out of Athens, Georgia that has been producing albums for sometime and describe their music making as a process of marrying the past to the future. They’re retro futurists hellbent on forging Krautrock and classic rock into one motorik, monolithic vehicle, releasing their newest album; Rehumanizer this October.
Rehumanizer is the most accomplished product of that process to date, a marriage of man and machine that plays like a supergroup comprised of Gary Numan, Cluster, and Pink Floyd. Building songs up bit by bit — and breaking them back down to their barest elements — Maserati fully embraced technology as a songwriting tool. The band takes greater risks than ever, sonically experimenting on the fly and incorporating unprocessed vocals for the first time ever. For the past decade Maserati has built a career out of relentless forward momentum – a tight, sleek, chugging beast that drove towards the sun and rarely veered off course. Rehumanizer maintains that same ambition and sense of abandon, but is distinctly as much man as it is machine – a true alliance of the past and the future.
The new album will contain a total of six tracks, and you can sample the track titled “Rehumanizer II” below.
Rehumanizer can be pre-ordered for $9.00 on Maserati’s Bandcamp, and will be released on October 30th.
