Kismet

From the play by Edward Knoblock

Neither Aladdin nor Ali Baba ever had a day like this! In the span of twenty-four hours, Hajj the beggar manages to escape the clutches of a vengeful bandit, drown the evil Wazir of Police, catch the eye of the Wazir's voluptuous wife, serve as Emir of Baghdad, and see his daughter wed to the handsome Caliph. brbrFrom the original hit Broadway and London productions to the popular MGM film and highly successful revivals around the world, this Arabian fantasy has proven a winner with audiences time and again, thanks to its exotic setting, appealing characters and wry sense of humor, not to mention a lush score adapted from the soaring melodies of Alexander Borodin. Packed with mirth, mayhem and romance, strongKISMET/strong has enough adventure and delight to last at least 1001 Arabian nights!

Today, Royal Trux are announcing their first album of new songs since 2000's Pound for Pound slated for release on March 1st via Fat Possum. The new album White Stuff  not only maintains the magic chemistry between Jennifer Herrema (vocal, moog, guitar, melodica) and Neil Hagerty (vocal, guitar) but expands upon it greatly with their natural ability to give us something unexpected, necessary, and truly unique. Their own formidable and informed imaginations.... the same two creative minds that brought us (to name a few) Twin Infinitives, Cats and Dogs and Accelerator, are present in the unadulterated, exhilarating energy that has the album listed on Pitchfork and Stereogum's most highly anticipated albums of 2019 lists. The newest single they are sharing, 'White Stuff,' follows on the heels of the recently released 'Every Day Swan' and 'Get Used To This' (featuring Kool Keith). Their lengthy recording break has done nothing to diminish their visionary, visceral intensity and enduring influence. We are incredibly excited to be sharing what they've cooked up in their collaborative kitchen and know we are most definitely not alone in this enthusiasm.
