Electronic Music mastermind Amon Tobin is at it again! Tobin launches a fresh, new project Only Child Tyrant. The first single “Monkey Box” from the album “Time to Run” is out now but the full album will be released at the end of July. “Monkey Box” gives you a satisfying taste of what’s to come.
“Time to Run” is hot on the heels of his long-awaited and critically acclaimed album “Fear in the Handful of Dust”, which was released in April and hit number one on numerous charts. Tobin’s newest project is sure to turn the music world on its head with creativity and originality.
Only Child Tyrant conjures up the Artful Dodger of post-rock locked in a raging battle with his own humanity. It’s Amon Tobin channeling a stroppy, relentless kid who’s been listening to his uncle’s collection of rock and stealing his brother’s 90’s mixtapes, and it’s all gone awry. “Monkey Box” is a perfect mix of old school classic rock styling. It conjures up memories of times past and still has a fresh take and new electronic flow.
“I’ve often made my favorite things when I wasn’t overthinking things. This record came about over a period of time between things I may well have been overthinking. It’s fun to program drums that sound live and fake at the same time, to make synths sound like guitars and have guitars played by robots. My enjoyment of these processes became a complete sound with its own personality, one that needed its own name. I hope you’ll like it as much or at least nearly as much as I did making it.”Amon Tobin
“Time to Run” will be released on July 26th. Only Child Tyrant is partnering with Bandcamp‘s innovative new vinyl pressing service, which activates fans to preorder physical records. Only Child Tyrant’s debut album “Time to Run” will be part of the pilot program for this exciting new service.
“Over at Nomark, we’ve been trying a few different things with releases. What’s been surprising in the best possible way is the enduring love out there for proper LP’s. Really though, it’s been one of those where it turns out the things we love are what you want too. Brilliant. now, we’re a tiny operation and the logistics for vinyl manufacture are no small task. So, imagine how thrilled we were to discover that Bandcamp have come up with a solution where I can spend more time making music and you’re not left at the mercy of eBay scalpers for a record we couldn’t afford to press more of. It’s a beautiful thing and I hope you’ll get behind it.”Amon Tobin
I loved “Monkey Box” and if the entire “Time to Run” album is anything in comparison, we are in for a treat! Tobin always amazes with his innovative sound. Each of his projects has a whole different ambiance and tells a story to the listener. The preorder for “Time to Run” is available now, order yours today.
