Released 8/22/2006
Refusing to be satisfied by the familiar, Supersystem has always been ready to destroy a song in order to put it back together again. Hip-hop, electronica, punk rock, so-called "world music" – a little bit of everything has gone into the architecture. This destruct/construct reflex is groomed and refined on the NY/DC quartet’s latest long player, A Million Microphones. The record’s eleven startlingly original tracks are saturated with African-tinged guitar, complex polyrhythms, atmospheric synthesizers, jaunty, funk-fried bass, and infectious beats.
