New Orleans guitar noise artists Belong are releasing a new full length record via Kranky on March 21. Common Era finds the two-piece band further expanding on the raw instrumental approach of their 2006 debut, October Language, with smeared vocals and calmly transportive sonics. Or as the label says – the songs themselves are akin to radio transmissions received from another time and place, just as likely to be the future as the past, or even from a contemporary alternate universe. “Perfect Life” is the scare the shit out of you lead single – an insistent, fuzzed-out pop song that synthesizes the album’s noisier tendencies with their obvious love of Unknown Pleasures.
