ABOUT THE ALBUM:
POST MILLENNIUM TENSION is an 8-track EP discussing various aspects of Metropolitan Life in the 21st Century First World. Topics include our on-going obsession with smart phones and mobile devices, internet privacy, the value of escaping to Nature, US whistleblower Ed Snowden and Les’ favourite futurist Gene Roddenberry. Guest appearances from Toronto rappers The Mighty Rhino and Timbuktu (Backburner/Swamp Thing) round out this look at our mental and social condition over snappy drums, folksy instruments and large, rolling baselines.
