TOBACCO streams ‘Sweatbox Dynasty’ album

TOBACCO streams 'Sweatbox Dynasty' album

On his forthcoming release, TOBACCO winds up coining an apt name for his Sweatbox Dynasty full-length. “It’s my baby,” says TOBACCO—a disturbing mental image if you overlook the beauty in his decrepit works.

The new album, out August 19th on Ghostly International, finds the rural recluse resurrecting an old approach to hack a new path through the muck. This may be his most unintentionally psychedelic and left-field creation yet, full of rhythms that start and stop like a tractor on its last piston, resonating melodies made to fuel transcendental meltdowns, and vocals that hiss, gurgle, and growl. Listen for yourself as the album is streaming in full this week via NPR First Listen. Additionally, Tobacco stitched together an hour long mix for Self-Titled dripping with summer sweat that is sure to keep temperatures running high.
