MISSION OF BURMA is an American post-punk band formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1979. They remain one of the most important American rock bands of the last 20 years. The band's new album 'The Sound The Speed The Light' is a departure from the pinned roar of 2006's 'The Obliterati'. Far more spacious and dynamic, it blasts off with the anthemic, catchy "1, 2, 3, Partyy!, a classic Burma rocker! Other tracks are slow, hypnotic builders, whilst others burst with uncontainable joy from the speakers. Of course, all the Burma trademarks are also present: the military snare drum, the melodic bass lines high up on the neck, and the furiously dissonant guitar work, refracted back into the songs via tape loops, all punctuated by the hoarse shouts of drummer Peter Prescott.
