A galactic drone, frozen and shattered to shards of sample & hold space ice, undermines an abandoned vessel as it drifts toward infinity. The lone survivor, a machine, utters in fractured phonemes the arrival of Cinco de Mayo in Space. Sequenced synthesizers, circuit bent voices, vintage drums, and polysynth pads combine in a strange meeting place between Mexican holiday and intergalactic travel.
Cinco de Mayo in Space took place on 5.5.2011 at Annabell's in Akron, Ohio. This album is the studio version of Black Unicorn's set. You can view video of the show here, vimeo.com/album/1597310
