Lazer Sword announce tour in support of “Memory”, new album out this week on Monkeytown

LAZER SWORD ANNOUNCE TOUR IN SUPPORT OF MEMORY, NEW ALBUM OUT THIS WEEK ON MONKEYTOWN

Lazer Sword, the duo comprised of Antaeus Roy (a.k.a Lando Kal) and Bryant Rutledge (a.k.a. Low Limit) released their sophomore album, Memory, earlier this week on Monkeytown Records. Memory may not be a complete departure from Lazer Sword’s earlier work, but those looking for the slapping hip-hop beats and crunked-up vibes that defined the group’s past releases may be surprised to find that Roy and Rutledge
have seriously trimmed the fat while simultaneously expanding their sonic palette. This is a sleeker, sexier version of Lazer Sword, one that take cues from ’80s electro, Detroit techno, and various brands of UK futurism.There is still plenty of low end, but the duo’s thick bass tones now serve as a jumping off point rather than a tool to bash you over the head. Preview a bit of Memory via album track, “Missed A Spot,” below.

Lazer Sword’s heart resides in the club, and in support of this new album, the duo will kick off an international tour tonight in Amsterdam. They’ve put together a special set comprised of material from Memory, though as always, expect a proper dose of improvised button-pushing flair, rarely exhibited with such mastery in clubland.
