New single described as sonic tribute to Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
 

Mission of Burma guitarist and cofounder Roger Miller has released a rousing new single, “Big Steam”, via Good Road Recordings. The accompanying video offers a disorienting stream of found footage, color manipulation, and shots of roller coasters and trains in motion. Featuring Larry Dersch (The Binary System) and Brian Arnold, both the track and its flipside, “Dream Interpretation”, have been described by Miller as “a deliberate sonic referencing of Pink Floyd’s Piper at the Gates of Dawn”.
