Scott Walker’s new album Bish Bosch is out today through 4AD, and you can also stream it in full via Rdio.
In his review of the album, Michael Roffman described it as “a bastard of a listen — a rare, tough piece of meat too savory to spit and toss aside. One can lose themselves in this album, and early on, too, trembling under the furious assault of dystopian instrumentation.” If you’re up to the challenge, listen to the nine tracks below.
For the album, Walker was accompanied in the studio by producer Peter Walsh and a core of musicians that included Ian Thomas (drums), Hugh Burns (guitar), James Stevenson (guitar), Alasdair Malloy (percussion), and John Giblin (bass). Detailed specifics on the record’s collaborators and each of the nine tracks can be found at bishbosch.com.
Bisch Bosch is also available to purchase in multiple configurations via Amazon.
