Aside from his work producing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Grammy nominated sophomore album
Show Your Bones and scoring countless films, documentaries, and commercials, in 2009 Spiegel founded N.A.S.A. (North America South America) whose landmark globetrotting debut LP,
The Spirit of Apollo, featured jaw-dropping collaborations from the likes of Kanye West, George Clinton, M.I.A., Tom Waits, RZA, David Byrne, and more.
After numerous experimental late night studio sessions with longtime friend and Sepultura vocalist Derrick Green in Sao Paolo, Brazil the Maximum Hedrum project was officially born. Heavily rooted in danceable electro-funk with classic synth textures, the album's single "Keep In Touch" is a thumping psychedelic offering that features additional vocals from George Clinton. The massive R&B influenced "Robosexual" incorporates additional percussion from guest collaborator Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while the dreamy track "PHD" trance pulses with classic hip hop inspired beats. From start to finish, the album is a genuine genre-melding ride.
Stay tuned for live dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
