THE ENVOY is Street Eaters' new record, a concept album based on famed dystopian, gender revolutionary, anti-authoritarian author Ursula K. Le Guin's books "The Dispossessed" and "Left Hand of Darkness". Cover art by Miriam Klein Stahl (illustrator of "Rad American Women A-Z" and "Rad Women Worldwide").
STREET EATERS are a truewave/punk band from Berkeley+Oakland, CA that has drawn a range of sonic comparisons to bands from Wipers to Masshysteri, Autoclave to Mission of Burma, Huggy Bear to KARP, Sonic Youth’s 'Bad Moon Rising' to the early recordings of Warsaw. After years of relentless international touring on the heels of their well-received album "Blood::Muscles::Bones" (released on Nervous Intent in the U.S./Contraszt! in Europe), Megan March and John No returned home to troubled times in their immediate bay area underground punk community/family and the world at large. True to form, the band sought to come to terms with this changed landscape by diving deeply into their own recording studio to create a new record with an expansive new vision with "The Envoy". Directly inspired by Le Guin’s radical speculative fiction and analytical lens on the world around us and beyond it, Street Eaters tackle transformative and transgressive lyrical themes of oppression, resistance, and change explored in the books.
"Street Eaters are two people—Megan March and John No—but on The Envoy, the followup to 2014’s Blood::Muscles::Bones, they conjure entire worlds. March and No thread the underwater yawp of sea lions, the grind of collapsing glaciers, and whistling oscillations of planets through their already noisy soundscape. Feedback whips and howls, while a wildly overdriven bass leads the way deeper into the darkness."
