Portuguese psych experimentalist outfit Gala Drop are back with a new album, their first in over six years. The new effort, II, is set to be released on November 24th via Golf Channel Recordings.
Gala Drop recruited Detroit ex-pat Jerry The Cat (Parliament, Funkadelic, John Lee Hoker) as a guest collaborator. “It’s as a vocalist he makes his mark on II”, says the press release, adding that “his dub-smeared murmurs and galvanizing cries push[ing] Gala Drop even further away from the introspective, delay-pedal drone duo they started out as nearly a decade ago”.
Ahead of the album’s release, Gala Drop have dropped two cuts off it, the ‘Sun Gun’ and ‘You And I’, the latter being offered with a video by Pedro Maia. Listen to both tracks below.
