DROSE is an experimental rock band from Columbus, Ohio, featuring the songwriting and voice of DUSTIN ROSE. Their fevered, nihilistic new release, boy man machine+, combines their 2016 album of the same name with their debut 7”, “a voice”, and an assemblage of unreleased tracks—all freshly remastered by veteran engineer CARL SAFF. Dustin Rose calls boy man machine+ “an indictment of human consciousness.” The music explores the torments of sentience through the sound of machines across four uncompromising sides of vinyl, featuring slashing lines from guitarist GREGORY PACKET and bizarre drum patterns from JOHN MENGERINK. The results are harsh, bewildering and strangely beautiful. The first release in Computer Students; Anatomical Reissues Series, which reissues albums with highly conceptual design, presentation and packaging. 2xLP inside gatefold jackets and 12-page codes guide, all housed in unique heat-sealed aluminum foil bags. CD with artwork and info printed directly on the transparent super jewel case. This album was written and recorded during the design and construction of a race car at the Center for Automotive Research in Columbus, Ohio, USA. The facility was home to constant manufacturing activity and cavernous ambient spaces where the machines, instruments and vocals were recorded. The main studio for live instruments and vocals was underneath a sectioned steel floor in a heavy-duty chassis dynamometer facility. Accessing the under side of the floor required a forklift to move one of the floor sections. This confined space was affectionately referred to as “the hole.” The album also showcases CNC mills and lathes, robotic welding, pneumatics and other mechanical sonic sources to represent the voice of the machine.
