On January 26, 2012, the Das Binky Recording Collective will release its debut album, “Divide the Storm.”
Featuring 15 tracks written over three years, the album is an eclectic collection of songs spanning multiple genres and moods, from sardonic pop to longing folk, from inflammatory metal to aggressive electronica to alternative rock.
Framed as a concept album about the impacts of living under the umbrella of American culture in the new millenium, “Divide the Storm” touches on themes of discomfort, alienation and the failure of the American Dream juxtaposed on, and unifed by, a catchy pop mindset. The songs aim to lodge themselves into your head, comment on our modern lives, and take you on a guided tour through Das Binky’s assimilated influences.
John Das Binky, Jordan Hirsch, and John Crossman lead the vocal efforts of an ensemble cast of musicians spanning four different countries and many different skill sets, each adding different flavors to the overall pop sound of the album. All of the music was written as part of February Album Writing Month (FAWM) or its sister project, 50/90, and the communities therein helped shaped the album’s vision.
The album will be available at CDBaby, iTunes or in-person, in both “Explicit” and “Clean” versions.
