Thom Yorke, Apparat and others guest on the German duo's third LP.
Modeselektor have announced details for their next album, Monkeytown, due for release in September.
The German duo are known for their goofy charisma and eclectic production style, and from the looks of it, Monkeytown stays true to form on both fronts. The LP features 10 new tracks, most of which feature guest appearances. Past collaborator and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke appears twice, and Moderat member Sascha Ring (better known as Apparat) plays guitar on the final track. Left-field hip-hop artists Busdriver and Antipop Consortium lend their vocal talents on "Pretentious Friends" and "Humanized," respectively. Warp outfit PVT (formerly known as Pivot) make an appearance as well.
The record will be Modeselektor's third artist album yet, after Hello Mom! and Happy Birthday. Both of those came out on BPitch Control; Monkeytown will be released through Modeselektor's own label.
