Due out April 6th via Jagjaguwar, Sex & Food follows 2015’s acclaimed Multi-Love. The new effort was recorded all over the world, including Seoul, Hanoi, Reykjavik, Mexico City, Auckland, and of course, Portland.
Lyrically, songwriter and frontman Ruban Nielson penned songs that ask, “What are we consuming? How is it affecting us, and why does everything feel so bad and weird sometimes?”, according to a press release. Instead of just focusing on the dark stuff, however, the album seeks out “positivity despite the strangeness of our times.” You know, things like sex and food, as the title suggests.
Pre-orders for the album are available here. The album art and tracklist are below.
