Building on their reputation as one of the best live acts in the world, pan-American eight piece group !!! have made the album that they always promised to. Recorded mostly in a rented communal house in Nashville, and the first album to be produced by band member Justin Van Der Volgen - Myth Takes is a real coming-of-age release.
Aside from an extended sojourn touring with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their Stadium Arcadium album tour last year, the band have devoted their entire focus to producing music that's even more powerful than their previous work and channeling this extra energy into exploring the function of Myth. They've even thrown in some intriguing lyrics to boot! As is reflected in the amazingly intricate, fantastical sleeve art, Myth Takes is a dense web of allusion that sees !!! sinking their world view into brilliantly inventive grooves that bubble with elements of Meters-style funk, Jamaican dub, cosmic Krautrock, house bleeps and the stark pleasure of NYC disco.
