Followup to 2012’s most excellent Meat and Bone.

They are calling it “a document of New York City, a chronicle of grit and terror and love.” That would be the new album from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, titled Freedom Tower – No Wave Dance Party 2015 and due March 24 on Mom + Pop.

The band continues: “It’s all here: The Hustler and The Trust Fund Baby, the Mosh Pit Casualty, the Celebrity Chef, the Crooked Cop, the Struggling Artist, the Sucker MC, the forgotten Sex Workers and Last-Chance Cinderellas. Within these grooves are cold-water tenements, blue-chip galleries, dingy Avenue B studios, and the last real warrior poet whose dark magick brings garage rock ghosts back from the grave!”

Well, all right then! Below, listen to the first single from the album, “Do the Get Down.”
