Atlanta based Ricer return to the scene of the crime with their bigger & badder "XXX+SIZE", the follow-up to 2010's debut release "#2's". Are you ready?
To prime you, lets have a quick history lesson. Ricer was formed in Atlanta in late 2009. Their current line-up consists of: Brandi Turner, the singer/slinger who can make both your eyes tear up & your ears bleed with one swoop of her six strings; Billy Duncan, the tattooed master of the four string who once made Judge Joe Brown beg for mercy. It was this lineup that made the Chinese officially change the year 2010 to the year of the "Ricer-Chicken" in honor of the cover star of their awe-inspiring debut.
It's 2011 now and Ricer is set to unleash the follow-up that will make the whole world take notice, not just the Chinese. "XXX+SIZE" expands the Ricer sound while also refining it. From the poppy punk of Switch and Ladyfingers, (think of the band Ricer); to the otherworldly, almost film noirish One on One and Strangers, (not unlike a darker Ricer); to the neo-musique concréte UN/Terror Kids, (like Ricer collaborating with long time noise provocateur Sequence 3); to Bleeder, (think of Ricer crushing your soul & spirit then helping you up so they might crush your conception of listening to anything but Ricer); "XXX+SIZE" has, to borrow the motto of WREK's Destroy All Music, - "something for everyone". China got it in 2010, now 2011 will be the year of Ricer for the rest of the world.
Are you ready? For the future? For the Mad, Heavy....HEAT!!!
