Wolf Eyes - Dread - New LP
Necessary reissue of this crucial side by the greatest underground band of your lifetime. Still sounds like nothing else. David Keenan (This Is Memorial Device / Volcanic Tongue)
NATE YOUNG • AARON DILLOWAY • JOHN OLSON
Originally released on Hanson Records, American Tapes and Bulb Records in 2001. Filters circuit bent electronics, fried dub and the dystopian proto-punk of Cabaret Voltaire and Suicide through a distinctly Midwest USA sensibility. The result is a freak classic for the ages.
This release continues to establish LOWER FLOOR MUSIC as a new home for the groups cultural vision, highlighting both new and archival work. Last year the label was minted with the release of their harrowing Undertow LP and the slowed down techno-meets-freeform jazz devastation of the follow-up Strange Days II 12". This is the latest fork in a path the band started forging in 1998, releasing a massive amount of small run DIY basement recorded tape and CD-R missives, as well as higher profile albums for the likes of Sub Pop, Third Man and De Stijl.
Vinyl includes download card (with Bonus Track), reverse board sleeve and double-sided fold-out A2 newsprint poster.
Born in the dead, dread-filled haunted hills of Michigan, Wolf Eyes are the rabid beasts of Trip Metal & have been plowing thru new tunnels of the underworld since 1997. Pure audio stunn, homemade post-nuclear terror & claustrophobic atmospheres -- the most shattered and confusing horrorvision since Bo Diddley dropped the duct taped warhead on all humans in 2024.
