Listen: Brian Jonestown Massacre ‘Aufheben’ Full Album Stream

Anton Newcombe will bring the Brian Jonestown Massacre to Australia this week, and to celebrate we have a full stream of their new album Aufheben for you to listen to below.

Aufheben, the German word for ‘abolish’/’preserve’ is the super-anticipated follow-up to 2010’s Who Killed Sgt. Pepper?. The Album, which marks the turn for original member Matt Hollywood, was recorded at frontman and creative dictator Anton Newcombe’s personal studio in East Germany.

Newcombe discussed the album in an interview with NME saying: “I love the concept of having to destroy something to preserve it – rip it up and start again. It makes sense with clay and sculpting, you don’t throw it away, you start again. I feel the same thing is true about society on many levels”. True Anton rhetoric!

Newcombe also discussed his thoughts on the return of Hollywood to the collective: “He’s a very creative person, even if he’s playing a piano part or something. It’s strange how we both understand each others’ ideas, and also contribute unique things, i.e. since we taught each other to play music, we both have the same approach to writing and playing and at the same time, and end up with totally different ideas to contribute. The best of both realms”.

This news comes with details of a combined Australian tour with Danish indie rock duo The Raveonettes in May.
