The US artist’s second album for Blackest Ever Black is due in January.
Blackest Ever Black has announced another album of “poignant, isolationist machine music” from North Carolina’s Secret Boyfriend.
Set for release in January 2016, Memory Care Unit is the follow-up to 2013’s underrated This Is Where You’ve Always Lived, and “guides us through vast interior topographies and nerve-damaged ambiences that comfort and deceive like memory itself.”
The former album was notable for its lo-fi, confessional approach, but Memory Care Unit takes the form of a series of “crude, extended live improvisations” that take the form of “electronic pop undressed, unravelled and mapped onto the infinite wave.”
The album is available in January 2016 and can be pre-ordered from the Blackest Ever Black website. In the meantime you can get a taste for Memory Care Unit with the power ambient of ‘Memorize Them Well’ below, and revisit FACT’s interview with Secret Boyfriend from 2014.
