Os The Voidz lançaram no ano passado o álbum Virtue mas pelos vistos não gastaram os trunfos todos num disco só e pouco mais de um ano depois já estão com música nova a rodar. A banda que em tempos se chamou Julian Casablancas + The Voidz – e que entretanto aglotinou a voz dos The Strokes no seu núcleo definitivamente -, trouxe agora o sempre carismático Mac Demarco para a cadeirinha da produção e ofereceu-lhe um “The Eternal Tao” para caminhar.

O caminho é feito em parceria com Kirin J Callinan que surge lado a lado com Mac nos créditos da produção do novo tema dos Voidz.

“The Eternal Tao” é assim lançado pela Terrible Records e vem colocar a questão se este será um ano fértil para os seguidores indefectíveis de Casablancas, já que os The Strokes revelaram há pouco tempo também uma nova música, “The Adults Are Talking“.

Jake Bercovici dos The Voidz conta como surgiu a parceria com Mac e Kirin:

One weekend in April we somehow ended up Mac’s house in Silver Lake, and he and Kirin recorded 2 songs we’d been working on. Mac has really dialed his rig and his signal chain is incredibly tasteful. It was interesting to hear ourselves in a foreign sonic atmosphere, because we didn’t bring any of our own gear. Also the songs weren’t really fleshed out at all, and it was great to have their insights and energy injected into the process of finishing them. They’re a dream team to be the studio with. Basically a lot of time fucking around, hunting for tones and vibes that felt cool, sanding down the stones into something more well kempt. We wound up doing a few takes of each song, and then everyone had to leave town the next day. Then we sent it off to the great Ben Baptie to mix & master. Initially, “The Eternal Tao” was born out of some chord and melody ideas Julian brought to the band a few months ago, and everyone put their own input and flavor spins on it and it became its own twisted LSD tinged Nigerian Disneyland of sorts.
