The Skinny: The heavy-hitting band Fractal Control is lead by Mike Louttit who writes socially aware and forewarning instrumental rock under the aforementioned moniker. His debut release, Disconnection Equals Freedom, is the first installment of a series of albums that address feelings of anxiety, dread, and frustration with our society at present. Listen to the first single, “Starved for Change,” above.

Disconnection Equals Freedom, does not articulate any specifics about the current state of the world, and is not meant to be another insight on “what’s wrong with things”. Through shred heavy numbers and thought-provoking sound bites, Fractal Control seeks to mirror the conscious and subconscious irritation and uncertainty within ourselves.
