Prostitutes feels Straightened Out
James Donadio has a new record coming on Atlanta label CGI Records.
Given how quiet last year was in terms of new music from Cleveland’s most foremost frowner James Donadio, the announcement he had a new Prostitutes album scheduled for release on Spectrum Spools was most welcome indeed. Ghost Detergent is due out at the end of next month, but will be preceded by a new 12″ from Donadio which adds Matt Weiner’s CGI Records to the collection of labels that have sought out the StabUdown boss. Founded back in 2013, the Atlanta-based CGI has quietly accrued a rather impressive discography with artists from both sides of the Atlantic contributing to Weiner’s label.
Along with Weiner’s own TWINS project, CGI has put out records from US underground acts like Golden Donna, Stefan Ringer and Will Azada as well as the prolific L/F/D/M project from Londoner Richard Smith. The addition of Donadio arguably represents the most high-profile CGI release to date and takes shape as a five-track 12″ entitled Straightened Out. A press release from the label states the record finds Donadio progressing from the “trademark blockiness of past rhythmic excursions into a compellingly rigid machine funk,” and a first taste of how this manifests can be heard with the rave-siren-heavy “Ridicule The Rule” available to stream in full below.
CGI Records will release Straightened Out by Prostitutes on May 9.
