After the release of VACCUUM's five song EP on Lengua Armada Discos earlier this year, the band handed the entire session over to PIG HEART TRANSPLANT for a treatment. The result of that treatment is five tracks of sinister and bombastic sound, taking the original recording to gut wrenching lows often lacking rhythm or order. SWANS style dirges creep out of the distortion with the subtlety of a steamroller, and one track simply devolves into a wash of harsh noise. While VACCUUM's initial intent is still sometimes present, this is an entirely new project with a completely unique approach and effect. More than a simple collaboration or a remix, this release captures the different visions of two very different bands on the same record.
*** The way Bigcartel sets up the shipping calculator, it is nearly impossible to calculate postage on orders of more than one item shipping to outside of the United States. That means that for orders of certain combinations of format / items, it is necessary to initially overcharge so as to not lose money on shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience but just last week I noticed that as it my shipping was set up, I was losing upwards of $12.00 ea in postage to non US based addresses for SEVERAL orders. For sustainability of the label, that cannot continue happening. What I am getting at, is that if you are overcharged for postage, I will issue a refund of the overpaid amount when I ship out your order. I will be checking every time. ***
