STOCKHAUSEN & THE AMPLIFIED RIOT are now streaming their new EP Era of the Inauthentic. To celebrate the release, the band has also shared their new video for focus track “Hunky Punk”. 

Watch here:

The band comments on the album: “I’m excited to finally have this new release completed and ready for fans to check out.  It’s a mixture of songs created from when the band was first starting out to the latest material.  Plus, it neatly showcases the wide range of styles that gets explored  and harnessed by the band – from new wave punk to blissed-out krautrock to Teutonic experimentation.”

Initially forming in early 2020 as a three-piece garage rock blues band, the pandemic put the brakes on the project and it’s now continuing as a solo project by Paul Chavez. Drawing inspiration from styles including 70s krautrock, psych rock and post-punk, along with artists such as DAVID BOWIE, KRAFTWERK, and STEREOLAB to name a few, STOCKHAUSEN & THE AMPLIFIED RIOT thrives in the realms of experimentation. Era of the Inauthentic, the title taken from a quote by Alan Vega of SUICIDE, combines an alluring concoction of textures from clean-toned and fuzz laden guitars, to dynamic percussion and audio FX. “Adolescent Lighting” kicks off the new EP with a dynamic sound. “Hunky Punk” brings heavier guitars for a hard rock and punk fueled track, while “What if it Never Ends?” fuses distortion with a drum machine that oozes danceability. “Tilde Mae”, the longest track on the release, delivers almost twelve minutes of Teutonic riffs, punchy beats and an injection of intriguing electronics. The minimalist effect of “Intubation Blues” vocals accompanied by drums and harmonica introduces a different mood, concluding the EP with a dramatic effect. 

Era of the Inauthentic is an eclectic venture through STOCKHAUSEN & THE AMPLIFIED RIOT’s distinctive sound. Powerful guitars deliver on the rock and punk elements of the project’s music, while electronics enhance the atmosphere of each track. Full of unexpected segments, Era of the Inauthentic will keep you hooked from start to finish.
