“If our last album was introverted, then the new one is definitely extroverted,” Justin Boreta explains of one of 2014’s most anticipated electronic-music albums: The Glitch Mob’s Love Death Immortality, to be released February 11th on their own Glass Air Records. Boreta represents one-third of The Glitch Mob’s core members, alongside Ed Ma (aka edIT) and Joshua Mayer (aka Ooah).
The album’s featured vocal collaborators, all of whom are female, was a decidedly purposeful choice for The Glitch Mob. “Becoming Harmonious,” flaunts the eerie tones of Bay Area avant-darkwave chanteuseMetal Mother and abum closer “Beauty of the Unhidden Heart,” meanwhile, highlights the dreamy, ethereal voices of Pitchfork favorites Sister Crayon. The most significant collaboration comes from Aja Volkman of L.A./Vegas rockers Nico Vega, who appears on both the alluring dancefloor filler “I Need My Memory Back” and the driving uptempo anthem “Our Demons” (for which she recorded initial vocals on the tour bus while Nico Vega was on the road opening for her husband Dan Reynolds’ band, Imagine Dragons).
