Preoccupations (formerly Viet Cong) have roped in Dan Boeckner (of Wolf Parade, etc.) for the 11-minute epic burner “Memory.” The track, culled from the band's self-titled LP, due September 16 via Jagjaguwar, is comprised of three unofficial movements, with the first section utilizing a gothic post-punk beat before switching into Boeckner's synth-pop extravaganza, and then a section featuring washes of ambient texture. Frankly, it feels like three completely different songs, and that's totally OK.

Check out the track below and catch them on the road in late Sept./early October.
