Album of the Week June 17/13 - Midnight Juggernauts "Uncanny Valley"

Our new Album of the Week is Australian band Midnight Juggernauts brand new album album 'Uncanny Valley', out now in Australia and France (Record Makers).

In robotic engineering and CGI, the Uncanny Valley is a hypothesis coined by legendary roboticist Masahiro Mori in 1970 - he wrote in his work 'Bukimi no Tani Gensh: "I have noticed that, in climbing toward the goal of making robots appear human, our affinity for them increases until we come to a valley, which I call the uncanny valley."

This "uncanny valley" is a phenomena in which human acceptance of robots grows more welcoming, the more human their appearance, until they become too human, in which there's suddenly a precipitous plunge from acceptance to revulsion.

'Uncanny Valley' marks Midnight Juggernauts' third full-length journey into the deep, once again piloting their glittery kosmische musik far into known cosmos and unknown genre. The band began rolling tape between a church nestled in the Loire Valley in the French countryside and various studios in Melbourne and Sydney, the resulting record is another LP that sounds uniquely Midnight Juggernauts. Situated at a self-styled nexus between genre and era, 'Uncanny Valley' is 43 minutes of warm-hearted cold wave, interstellar harmony's, early 1950's house, steeped in the darkness of dusty Giallo soundtracks, audio spomeniks at once futuristic and rustic, a bold musical future envisaged through a soundtrack to a forgotten Eastern Bloc Tarkovsky film, sifting through the ruins of LPs past.

Tracklist:

1. HCL
2. Ballad of the War Machine
3. Memorium
4. Streets of Babylon
5. Sugar and Bullets
6. Master of Gold
7. Systematic
8. Deep Blue Lines
9. Another Land
10. Melodiya

The band recently unveiled the video for "Memorium". Watch it below.
