Polyrhythmics Share New Album ‘Man From The Future’

Seattle-based Polyrhythmics‘ sixth studio album, Man From The Future, is out today on the Color Red record label. Each of the eight members of the band — guitarist Ben Bloom, drummer Grant Schroff, keyboardist Nathan Spicer, percussionist Karl Olson, bassist Jason Gray, trumpeter Scott Morning, trombonist Elijah Clark and saxophonist/flutist Art Brown — wrote songs that appear on the new album.

The songs on Man From The Future first took shape during a 72-hour snowed-in retreat at Mysty Mountain Properties near the Skykomish River in Baring, Washington. The band then recorded the tracks at Studio Aleph with Gray engineering the sessions. Gray also was in charge of mixing down the album, which was mastered by Doug Krebs at Doug Krebs Mastering and serves as the follow-up to 2017’s Caldera.

“People want to search for a mood rather than an artist when they’re listening to music these days,” Olson stated. “We’re creating a vibe that happens within a song and it happens at several points across this album. A lot of people will want to listen if they know that they can evoke a mood out of this music … We learn so much about how to get the sounds we want — and we do this ourselves. Every record we make, we build off the experiences of the last record.”
