“They’re Just Words” (feat. Douglas J McCarthy)

Detroit House Guests

ADULT. (Detroit’s Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have announced details of a new collaborative album,Detroit House Guests, out on double vinyl and CD on March 17, 2017, their first album for Mute.  Featuring Nitzer Ebb’s Douglas J McCarthy, ADULT.’s new single kicks ass.  You can dance to it, you can sit and just blow your mind.  The album features collaborations with a whole host of musicians and artists – Douglas J McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb, Michael Gira from Swans, Shannon Funchess from Light Asylum, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe aka Lichens, Austrian thereminist Dorit Chrysler and multidisciplinary artist Lun*na Menoh. Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio and have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan), and Centre d’art contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at spaces such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City), and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).  They worked with everyone from John Foxx and Tuxedomoon to the Pet Shop Boys.  This new collaboration is so wonderfully fresh.  I love when artists and musicians combine so flawlessly for a new sound.  ADULT. are exactly that: mature music for mature audiences.
