WOM048 - Atomic Ape Rampage 7" Vinyl
Album preview: [mp3]
Atomic Ape's brand new single! Strictly limited to 500 copies.
Following the release of their debut full-length album, "Swarm," Atomic Ape is back on the warpath, unleashing a new pair of singles via the Rampage seven-inch. Featuring another all-star cast of players—including Tim Young, Devin Hoff, Joe Doria, Mike Stone, Steve Moore, Danny Frankel, and many more—the two new tracks showcase different skillsets of a dynamic troop.
“Rampage” is a jumping number that immediately hooks with bombast, surf overtones, and spy-movie motifs, filtered through the lens of a modern jazz-rock group. Howling horns, swinging bass lines, and swanky organ solos steal the show, leading an infectious assault of the eardrums.
On side B, “Shadow Valse” reveals a softer side—a harmonically rich, densely layered mix of instrumentation and percussion. It soothes before building an undeniable energy, full of unforced improvisations and a deft sense of melody, rhythm, and groove.
Side A: "Rampage"
