On "Big Steam," Roger Miller - on vocals, guitar and bass - is joined on drums by long-time collaborator Larry Dersch (The Binary System), with multi-tracked French Horns by Brian Arnold. The instrumental flipside, "Dream Interpretation," adds organ to Miller's musical duties, with Dersch again on drums. Both songs are, Miller explains, "a deliberate sonic referencing of Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn."
Both songs were co-produced by Roger Miller and noted Berklee College of Music professor Michael Bierylo. It is a rare vocals- and guitar-based solo outing by Miller, who frequently records as a leader on keyboards, which he plays in Boston's Alloy Orchestra.
The single hits on the heels of Mission of Burma's universally-acclaimed album, Unsound (Fire Records). Burma will be touring the U.S. and Europe throughout 2012.
The Alloy Orchestra will also be touring the U.S. throughout the fall.
"Big Steam" 7" Vinyl will be available at 2012 Mission of Burma and Alloy Orchestra performances.
