Trans-Orbital 5:050:00 / 5:05
Porcine Assembly Line is a solo music project from Australian musician Brodie Roberts, started in the second half of 2018. From 2010 to 2012, Brodie was a fixture of his local music scene in Bendigo, Victoria; playing live with two wild, abrasive alternative-rock bands.
By the end of 2012 he was a drug-added mess, leaving both his home town and the music scene to get his life back in order. Since 2017, he has been writing and recording music with a renewed clarity and drive. Porcine Assembly Line has been through several incarnations.
In Porcine Assembly Line (Version 1), Brodie produced a pair of Alt-Rock EPs: The Darkest Place and Transmutation Valley.
In Version 2, Brodie has switched to releasing regular singles with the intention of compiling these into an album in 2020.
The next single is called Trans-Orbital and will be released on January 31st
Starting in October 2019, I've been releasing one new track every month. The idea is that I can compile the best 7 - 10 of these new songs into a coherent Album by the end of September 2020. Some of the tracks will be great, others not so much; but I'm sure that the journey will be worth your time (and mine).
Latest Single - Trans-Orbital
Trans-Orbital is the latest single by Porcine Assembly Line.
Musically, it centres around a repeating bass groove. The drums also keep to a (mostly) consistent theme, with slight variation between sections. The layered guitars and synths provide some texture/flavour while the out-of-phase vocals carry the core melody of the song.
The lyrics are quite personal, focusing on Brodie's experiences with anti-depressants and comparing them to a trans-orbital lobotomy.
All the music that I have released for direct purchase on Bandcamp since 2018. So far, this only includes my first two EPs. Later, the full Album-in-a-Year will be available for purchase as well.
