The Death Set – ‘Michel Poiccard’ Album out February 28th+free download track ft Diplo
The album comes prefigured by tragedy, following the death of founding member Beau Velasco. It wouldn’t have been surprising if the group had decided to call it a day, but instead Johnny Siera, with long time band members Daniel Walker and Jahphet Landis, relocated to Brooklyn and decided to make the record a celebration of Velasco’s life.
Produced by XXXchange, the album loses none of the ‘punk spazz’ approach of debut ‘Worldwide’, but adds considerable depth, both sonically and emotionally. Above it all floats the spirit of Beau Velasco, amused and laconic. His voice opens the record with words which could serve as the group’s mission statement, perhaps never so fully realised: “I wanna take this tape and blow up ya fuckin’ stereo!”
