Chicago’s noise/rock/sludge trio Escape is not Freedom will be releasing their second album Goldsmith on February 24 and today we have the premier of “Dispossess“. This track may be slower than the rest but is nonetheless devastating, featuring guest vocals from Emily Jancetic that brings a Julie Christmas feel to the song and that’s always a good thing. The slight change of pace here veers from their AmRep-ish noise but lets some of their other influences bleed through; shades of heavier post metal and the sludgy bounce of a more playful Melvins towards songs end all makes for an engaging and addictive song. See for yourself after the jump.
Escape is not Freedom features Mike (guitar, vocals), Darrin (drums) and Josh (bass). Goldsmith was recorded and mixed at Howl Street Studios with Shane Hochstetler and mastered at Saff Mastering with Carl Saff. Be sure to pick up your copy February 24 on the band’s Bandcamp page. Also, go here for a previously released stream of “Night Light.”
