Street Sects announce ‘The Gentrification IV: Suspended From Gallery Rails’ EP

Experimental duo Street Sects have announced the fourth installment of their ‘Gentrification’ EP series. Focusing on “the repugnant hypocrisy inherent in our arts and entertainment circles,” the new release marries Street Sects’ grating electronics with a razor sharp social consciousness.  Street Sects said of the EP’s concept: “We invite you, the consumer, to pull the pencil from the writers hand and shove it deep into our one good eye…until you feel the graphite connect with gray matter. We’re as tired of this bullshit as you are”. Listen to Tomorrow is a Trap via YouTube below, which is lifted from the ‘The Gentrification IV: Suspended From Gallery Rails’ EP.

Tapping the emotional wellspring that fueled the Street Sects’ earlier releases, the themes and stories revolving around the ‘Gentrification’ series confront the stories of characters whose lives are maligned by alienation, exile, and economic peril. These castaways, offenders and recidivists are a glaring example of the consequences of a systematic ideological violence inflicted by the haves upon the have-nots. 

Continuing to retool both themselves and the post-industrial canon, Street Sects continue to dig their heels even deeper into sample-driven noise while fleshing out chronicles of brutality and loathing.
