The Rattler Proxy return in 2016 with the first tracks to come out of a week-long recording session with the mezcalero mensch, producer Thomas Bullock, who visited Athens last summer in the midst of a turbulent financial crisis referendum. These three new tracks act as a prelude to their upcoming album. "Follow" is a ten-minute acid storm brewing with distorted vocals and jangling art rock guitar - it was previewed by Tim Sweeney on his Beats In Space radio show and selected as one of his best tracks for 2015. "Ex Cop" is an edgy three minute punk stomper with sharp guitars and an incessant driving beat. "Mother Goose", like "Follow", showcases more of the band's techno influences with thundering drums and twangy synths emanating from the deep.

70's/80's hard-boiled films meet late 2000's electro in this retrofit bound to upgrade your library. "皆 (Mina)" is a drive from Italy to Paris, shaking off unknown pursuers. "Serengeti Drive" is queued upon arrival at night, a neon noir with alleyways whispering of secrets in the Northern Channel. You make your way to the port, and as you pay the sub ferry your fee, "Mysteries of The Deep" plays as you review evidence of the enemy's spy. Quite cinematic stuff here. Moonholders
