Album: Now Is The Time!
Song Notes: I'm a Wound and a Sword, A Victim and an Executioner: This is the teaser single from POLYSICS' new album, Now Is The Time!. It's a little on the poppier side, similar to the For Young Electric Pop album, and I really love it. I'm really excited for the new album, and perhaps the rapid US and UK release of the best-of POLYSICS Or Die!!!! will mean that a domestic release of this album will be forthcoming soon as well. In the meantime, if they come near you, you must go see them—the rest of us can keep up with their English Language Tour Diaries. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
Dub Club: Matt's 2005 Best Of -- Streets Named For New England Trees: POLYSICS. Awesome. That's pretty much it. This is the lead single for the new POLYSICS album Now Is The Time!, and it's a return to the poppier sound of For Young Electric Pop. I've heard the full album is as well—I haven't heard it yet. I was out of work when it came out, and I've been holding off now that I’m employed again, as I've heard that Tofu Records is supposed to be putting it out soon… unfortunately, I've also heard that Tofu Records is very flakey about actually putting records out, despite being a part of Sony (apparently—didn't know that, either!), so who knows whether or not it actually will. Regardless, if you can't wait and want to drop 30 bucks on the import version, I'm sure it'd be worth it. If you don't want to spend that kind of coin, Tofu actually HAS released (as in, you can go to the store and get it now), the Japanese best-of POLYSICS Or Die!!!!, which is a really good mix of stuff, along with some new recordings to make it worthwhile for fans as well. - Rev.
