ADULT. Reveal Detroit Residencies With Michael Gira, Shannon Funchess & More

ADULT. have lined up quite the guest list for their sixth LP, including Swans frontman Michael Gira, Light Asylum singer Shannon Funchess, and one-man drone machine Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, a.k.a. Lichens. Detroit House Guests isn’t any old album, however; it’s a series of fully funded (by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation) residencies at the duo’s longtime Detroit home.

According to a press release, “This project will build on Detroit’s rich musical legacy by bringing outside musicians to experience and interact with Detroit and its community. Community interaction will consist of a comprehensive tour of the city, a welcoming party with local artists and musicians, and public performance when available. Living in downtown Detroit for over 20 years, ADULT. hopes this project will bring more positive attention to the city through the arts.”

The record’s proper release is expected sometime in late 2015 or early 2016. In the meantime, here’s a trailer, a complete list of participants, and ADULT.’s killer Detroit techno cover “Shari Vari”…
