Below, stream “Battle Funk,” a 10-minute tune from Brooklyn soul-noise outfit NYMPH‘s upcoming album New Millenium Prayer. The band, which recently built on its already strong Athens ties by inviting several former members of Dark Meat—namely Jim McHugh, Jason Robira and sometime Flagpole contributor Jeff Tobias—into the fold, has built its psych-addled worldbeat into something muscular and beautifully freakish.
New Millenium Prayer comes out June 25 via prestigious experimental label Northern Spy Records. You can pre-order the album on CD and LP on the Northern Spy site. Welcome the boys back to town when NYMPH plays Farm 255 during AthFest, on Saturday, June 22.
