“Research into the ghosts we connect with on the dance floor.”

LCD Soundsystem’s Gavilán Rayna Russom is releasing a new album under her Black Meteoric Star alias, titled Disco, via her own Voluminous Arts label this April.

The album is not disco in style, but rather its name “has to do with the layering of time and life energy present in the spaces where we have traditionally danced to music which are sometimes called Discos”, explains Russom.

“Whether it be through partying in former industrial buildings, contested spaces of labor built on lands violently appropriated from indigenous people, uncomfortably inhabiting vacuums in queerness left by the AIDS epidemic, lifting lineages through sampling, or the relentless cycle of whitening that accompanies dance music’s march into the market, our experiences in the Disco have been permeated by the spectral and the haunted.”

Disco was made without multitracking or overdubbing, recorded directly from single live takes.

It follows the first release on Voluminous Arts – Russom’s solo album Secret Passage.
