Container - "ERASER"

Ren Schofield is back with his brand new music under his moniker Container and "ERASER" is the lead single from his forthcoming album, YACKER.

Last we heard from Ren Schofield's project Container was 2021's Creamer EP, but today he's announced a new album is due in April and shared the first, explosive preview; the new song "ERASER." Taking cues from underground noise and mixing it with his hard-hitting blasts of techno, Container slams back into the fold with blistering sonics and ragged beats that wouldn't sound out of place on a Lightning Bolt record. Citing rock music as a main inspiration, this is some physical music that takes on a life of its own outside the usual parameters you may expect while still maintaining the abrasive and intense moments that Container has so masterfully created in the past. Still, even with rock as a main component, this is still extreme electronic music that revs its engines with sinister bliss, jacking up the BPMs to white-knuckle velocities that are sure to put you into a trance. Pushing the limits of audio-overload with a break-neck pace and agitated rhythms, this music isn't for the faint of heart, but giving into the groove and surrendering to the noise can also result in a more playful mood. From the press release: "Yacker strikes an even balance between heavy, relentless, joyful, silly, and sloppy. Think Lollapalooza 1996 held at Berghain 2006 and you are somewhere on the way to formulating this fresh new insanity from one of the contemporary electronic music scene's more playful pioneers."

YACKER is out April 5.
