DIRTY SOUND MAGNET – Announce New Album ‘TRANSGENIC‘

DIRTY SOUND MAGNET

Announce New Album ‘TRANSGENIC’

Out on October 18th 2019 via Hummus Records

The psychedelic rock power trio from Fribourg, Switzerland, Dirty Sound Magnet return in 2019 with their new record ‘Transgenic’ a self proclaimed mystical journey back to the future which focuses on individual behaviours within it.

Transgenic: Drowned in this world of advanced technology and hyper-consumerism, individuals struggle to discover their inner self or communicate with each other. The album lays out a disturbing view of the present and the near future, with the significance of Social Media, and increasingly alarming ecological issues giving shape to an Orwellian dystopia.

The egocentric practices inherent to Social Media are mocked by Stavros’ insolent lyrics and tone. The drama and loneliness of “Modern Man” is highlighted across Transgenic, with emotional issues and personal experiences completing the lyrical content. Musically, The album draws on the last 50 years of Pop Culture, with some touches of traditional folk music, but as a whole, Transgenic is true Rock. Production-wise, the band plays with light and shade and introduces the terms “Organic” and “Transgenic” as musical concepts. When delving into the organic realm, the sound is warmer, and the recording techniques used are vintage.

Dirty Sound Magnet is a lifelong pursuit built on a feverish, border-line-religious passion for music and a common set of guiding values and beliefs. Members Stavros Dzodzosz (Guitar, Vocals), Marco Mottolini (Bass) and Maxime Cosandey (Drums), The three state it plainly: “there is no plan B”. Their dedication is unconditional, unequivocal, and unavoidable. Not one of the members has been engaged in any side projects since the band’s formation a decade ago; Dirty Sound Magnet offers them a musical framework without any boundaries to their creative expression. The band’s DNA can be traced back to the ancestral ‘Golden Age of Rock’ (60s, 70s), but it would be incorrect to think that DSM is…”retro”. The musicians are inspired by contemporary artists and modern production techniques, pushing the boundaries as they see fit.

The results are personal, unique and original. Simply put: the Dirty Sound Magnet experience is a mystical journey back to the future…TRANSGENIC
Transgenic will be released on October 18th, 2019 via Hummus Records.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
