Parts & Labor Do Daytrotter

New Daytrotter session with Parts & Labor playing extended versions from their new album Constant Future. From Daytrotter:

The one thing that you can never deny this ultra-creative trio is that, even when it sounds like 20 drag races to the death, happening simultaneously, busting out windows with their hauling ass decibels, lighting their clothing, our clothing, the fields, the barns all on fire in doing so, waking everyone within a hundred miles up with its monstrous cacophony, it still comes to us, almost sweetly.

We couldn’t agree more. Check out the session HERE.

New Video: Parts & Labor “Echo Chamber”

In January, Parts & Labor participated in the “Sequence of Waves” art happening where over 60 artists took over St. Cecilia’s Convent in Brooklyn, collaborating for a one-day multi-media event. For their part, Parts & Labor constructed a house where bands performed throughout the day. Using this back drop Parts & Labor teamed up with Nicholas Chatfield-Taylor to produce a new music video for “Echo Chamber” from their new album Constant Future, which we are happy to share with you today. Chatfield-Taylor previously worked with Parts & Labor on their video for “The Gold We’re Digging”. As the band plays a house builds and falls around them, eventually growing to encapsulate them.

We’re proud to present the first Mp3, the title track from Constant Future. The song begins with a signature Parts & Labor synth melody before being pummeled with a percussive drone ticking along like clockwork, literally moving us into the future. Parts & Labor’s Dan Friel sings of our collective thirst for the “next” and the “newest.”
