All you 13 & God fans waiting to hear the group’s first release in six years, Own Your Ghost, should check your calendars. Because if you haven’t realized it yet, the album is out now. I know, you haven’t had a chance to make it to the record store this today. Fret not, anticon faithful, because Self-Titled Mag has the entire album up for streaming right now. They also have words from Doseone on every track, such as the following explanation of “Old Age“:
My personal favorite. I could listen to this until my hair falls out. And of course I did nothing on it. Ha. We really wanted to make a “Perfect Speed II,” because the simple Jel beat/Markus singing thing is such a money shot. So Jeff made this beat while we finished another song in Weilheim during our second session. Then Markus added guitar and lyrics.
This was another song that just “fell toward the target”; all we had to do was push a bit. And we were all bopping around during mix down. Some songs seem to survive the whole “listening to it 1000 times” thing that music makers go through. This one has that glue for me. And again, we end it with a sovereign lady of death appreciation. Dearest Ms. Plath, death did not deserve you.
Head to Self-Titled Mag to listen. Own Your Ghost is out now.
