Fuck Buttons' Benjamin John Power to Release Solo Debut on Rock Action, Streams First Track

Benjamin John Power, one half of noise duo Fuck Buttons, recently announced that he's going it alone, at least for now, under the moniker Blanck Mass. The Londoner's self-titled album, slated to appear on Mogwai's Rock Action label on June 21, is "loosely themed around cerebral hypoxia and the beautiful complexity of the natural world," so sayeth Blanck Mass' press release. Expect much analog synthesis and guitar noise, if "Land Disasters" (which you can stream below) is any indication.

"I do like the fact that this album represents a pretty clear image of myself," says Power, "that which I am aware of and that which might be controlled by some other type of subconscious guidance." We'll see how that translates sonically when Blanck Mass is out in June, but for now, peep the tracklist and check out "Land Disasters" below.
