Label: Thrill Jockey

Released 2009

Reissue of 6th full-length from 2009. Nods to techno, punk, electro, lo-fi noise, cut-up beats, heavily processed synths, & mournful elegiac dirges. Consistent throughout, however, is what might be called a pervasive element of group play or "ensemble-mindedness" where sound is worked out as a conversation among the individual & interrelated parts. 180 gram LP in old-style tip-on gatefold jacket.
