New Parasite release

Post by parasiteinblack »

"Are You Broken?" and "Period of Change"

The latter is mocking "management speak", as we're currently "on a journey" and all that.

spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/6FAmZMh9 ... rxzQsoG7ZA
bandcamp: https://parasiteofficial.bandcamp.com/a ... -of-change
it'll be on all the other platforms too, if anyone still uses em.

The brand new album "Generation Ostrich" is out today. Here's the pretentious guff I wrote on the bandcamp to explain the ideas behind it:

"Have you ever noticed how people these days are so preoccupied, misinformed and distrustful? There seems to be a general apathy towards society, the welfare of others, education and politics...
We are living in "Generation Ostrich."
This seems to be a generation with a general lack of imagination and curiosity as displayed by the narrow cultural experiences and viewpoints that most people appear to have these days, amplified by their digital echo chambers.
This album gives an overview of this phenomenon with references to such symptoms as illiteracy, management-speak, isolation, digital assistants, the Flat Earth "community" and the Dunning-Kruger effect...

This is the first full album released by the Scanlon & Saunders lineup in 13 years and features artwork painted by legendary artist Bob Parks."


bandcamp link for digital and CD: https://parasiteofficial.bandcamp.com/a ... on-ostrich
digital stores link (hopefully): https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/paras ... on-ostrich

There's also an option on the bandcamp to buy a bundle of all our previous albums digitally with a 40% discount. I've even remastered the last few so they sound a lot nicer... Hope you find something you like!

That was an interesting listen - like tuning in to John Peel in the mid eighties!
On first listen, Are You Broken is the stand out track.
