Metropolis Records has announced the release of the upcoming full-length from Moving Units. Hitting stores on September 10, 2013, Neurotic Exotic marks founder Blake Miller’s return after exploring the world as a DJ and collaborating with a myriad of artists. While staying true to the Moving Units “get up and dance” sound, the ten-track LP is more realized through Miller’s growth as an artist and musician through his life experiences. See below as the band hits the road on a national tour beginning this fall. More dates to be announced shortly. Additionally, to celebrate the release Moving Units are giving listeners a sample above.
The most difficult task for a scorching live band is replicating that energy in the studio. And on their third LP, Neurotic Exotic, Moving Units succeed with the same acrobatic agility, flamboyance, and dark erotic imagery they’ve channeled since their inception.
The tone is set from the title of the first song: Attack Everything. There is no time to hesitate and nothing is left behind. It is a 40-minute blitzkrieg of searing sexy guitar riffs, propulsive synthesizer riffs, and urgent drums fit to detonate any dance floor. Think a long-lost album of Italo-disco covers of Sonic Youth songs and you begin to get close. When you stop moving, there is something to hold onto. In essence: the attack never stops.
