Title: False Flag
Vinyl: Sold Out
Description: The original intention was to release this as a standalone 10” with drums firmly at the forefront but we mistakenly sent the wrong files to the vinyl manufacturer and only discovered our error after we took delivery of the final records and listened back to them. We placed a brand new order with the correct music and then spoke with Minus Pilots to consider together what to do with the old records. Our initial discussions centred around recycling them by etching a PARS design onto the A and B sides but after a few months of deliberation we eventually agreed to keep the records untouched and give them away free of charge to all who purchased a copy of the ‘False Flags’ 10”. As a consequence of the space left unfilled by the missing drums, ‘False Flag’ emphasises the outer limits of minimalism with mellow sustained bass patterns and multiple currents of tape crackle taking centre-stage. Gently dissolved structures, this version of the record must be heard.
