Sway Machinery
William Goodman

New supergroup development! Brian Chase, drummer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Colin Stetson, touring saxophonist for the Arcade Fire, and Stuart Bogie and Jordan McLean, Antibalas' tenor saxophone and trumpet player, respectively, have joined Balkan Beat Box guitarist Jeremiah Lockwood for the Sway Machinery, whose self-titled debut EP is set to arrive September 16 via JDub.

With such a wild assortment of musicians, what could this new project possibly sound like? Well, listen to the eclectic afro-beat, blues, and Jewish-cantorial (songs sung in synagogue) melange of "P'sach Lanu Sha'ar (Open the Gates for Us)" below, the very first leak from the band's forthcoming album, and offer your thoughts in the comment section below.
