One of electronic music’s most influential bands, INFORMATION SOCIETY (or INSOC as they are affectionately known) return with ODDfellows, one of their most diverse and artfully crafted albums since their Twin Cities, MN inception in 1982. Just as groundbreaking as they were in the early beginnings of New Wave and Electropop, INSOC are breaking ground again with this album. The very first complete album to be released with a headphone version rendered in THX Spatial Audio, ODDfellows takes advantage of the same THX Spatial Audio technology used in gaming platforms to provide audio that sounds like it’s coming from ‘outside your head.’
“We’ve always been a technically adventurous band, and I think this is just another example of that,” says founder/producer/synths Paul Robb about how the album simulates the 5.1 environment. “We like to play around the edges of what’s possible in recorded music, and so we are excited to provide our music to our fans with deeper immersion and a 360° soundscape experience provided by THX Spatial Audio!” (The album is also available in standard stereo).
Downloading the album from Bandcamp includes both the standard ‘traditional stereo’ mix as well as the THX Spatial Audio mix.
