Brooklyn based electronic duo, Shanghai Restoration Project (SRP) has released a full stream of their new album R.U.R.. Featuring the singles “Alpha Go” and “Spooky Party” the record was self-produced and recorded on their own in New York over the last year.
When commenting on the new album, the duo said, “Inspired by a combination of current events and technological breakthroughs, R.U.R. imagines a future in which humans have been replaced by artificial intelligence. To capture this dissonance between the natural and artificial, our production choices include detuned analog instruments paired with human vocals, polyrhythms comprised of body percussion and plant pots, and samples ranging from rainforest insects to outer space sounds. Hopefully these choices make our album resonate better with listeners.”
