Wolf Eyes

Dread

    A sought after early Wolf Eyes album back on vinyl and CD for the first time in 17 years. 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.

    “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)

    FORMAT INFORMATION

    CD Info: Bonus track “Sandpapered Eyes” included as a ‘hidden’ track on CD.

    Times of chaos ring the bells for the newest sea-bottom R&B sound lurch from radical sonic artists Wolf Eyes. The U$A’s longest-running homemade primitive electronic poetry & vibes trio launch another scotched taped nuclear audio front on humanity. The 2017 release Undertow finds the trio diving into new depths of the electronic and free jazz infected world. A world they created themselves from scratch, running over the course of two decades.

    Formed in 1996 in Detroit, Michigan, Wolf Eyes have recorded for Sub Pop, Troubleman Unlimited, De Stijl and most recently Jack White’s Third Man label, as well as their countless self-released documents of audio destruction and micro-run slabs of noise. The band has an inzane history of collaborations, side projects and solo outputs. While staying consistently road-hardened they’ve shared stages with everyone from Sonic Youth to Anthony Braxton to Andrew W.K. to Aphex Twin to Morton Subotnick. The Wolf boys also continue to play gigs with all like-minded outsider stoner/loner freaks in the world’s basements, from whence this beast originally emerged.

    Lower Floor Music is a brand new imprint dedicated to the group’s cultural vision. The Lower Floor Music label will be curated by Wolf Eyes and feature both new and archival visions from the band as well as work by like- minded artists.

    FORMAT INFORMATION

    LP Info: The vinyl edition of the album comes with an A2 fold-out newsprint poster featuring the epic album artwork on one side and a band written zine on the other side, comprising of a highly entertaining 2002 tour diary, and reviews of some key small-run tape and CD-R releases in the Wolf Eyes back catalogue written by band member John Olson.

    LP includes MP3 Download Code.
