Shout Out Out Out Out‘s third full length album, Spanish Moss And Total Loss, was recently released on Normals Welcome Records, and the goods are continuing to come.  The Edmonton, AB-based six piece — consisting of Nik Kozub, Jason Troock, Lyle Bell, Will Zimmerman, Clint Frazier, and Gravy — saw their new video for “Now That I’ve Given Up Hope, I Feel Much Better” premiered by BlackBook Magazine, which was co-directed by Aaron Munson and Lyle Bell (the latter who is also in the band). Toronto-based duo Jokers of the Scene (Fool’s Gold) also remixed the synth-heavy album cut “Wayward Satellite,” with the remix hitting URB today as well.

Spanish Loss & Total Loss is their most melodic and textured effort to date, with parts of the album really treading new territory for them. Fans of the prior albums will have a lot to sink their teeth into, but with SO4 listening to a lot of Todd Terje around the recording of the new LP, new rhythms and stylistic shifts begin to emerge — reflected in the kaleidoscopic final artwork for the album.

More info on Shout Out Out Out Out:

The new album shows Shout Out Out Out Out’s growth as songwriters, with a strong melodic focus, and an expanded base of instrumentation. Their vast collection of analog synths has grown, and is featured very heavily, alongside saxophone, Rhodes piano, baritone guitar, and of course their signature double drummers, and vocoder laden vocals. The new album features a wider variety of tempos and feels than Shout Out Out Out Out’s two previously acclaimed records, while still maintaining the dancefloor filling energy they are widely known for. The growing influence of Disco, Classic House, Krautrock and cosmic synth music are extremely present, with a hint of the punk ethic of the band’s roots lurking in the shadows. Recorded at the new Audio Department Studio in the band’s hometown of Edmonton over the course of 3 months using a wide variety of analog gear, Spanish Moss And Total Loss is a stunning and deep listen.

“Our new album, Spanish Moss and Total Loss, was recorded over the course of 3 months in our hometown of Edmonton. We strongly feel that it is our best work to date (and so we should, what would be the point otherwise?). The album marks a bit of a departure from our previous material, or rather a natural progression. Since our humble beginnings in 2004, we have grown to be fully encompassed in the world of electronic music, and this is now our world and the way we think about things. We tried to write a record that we would all personally listen to, and a record that we would be proud to play as DJs (we do that too). This is our most ambitious production to date, expanding our previous instrumentation of two drummers and four bass players (with a mountain of analog synths), to include Rhodes piano, baritone guitar, saxophone, and well, even more synths.” – Nik Kozub, Shout Out Out Out Out
