Special colored 'splatter' vinyl limited edition of our second LP 'Anchor' with hand silk-screened cover, plus download code.

Scratch Edition

Scratch Edition

I've developed a method for scratching rhythms into the circular groove at the center of vinyl records. This kit includes a unique hand scratched vinyl LP of our first record (Zammuto S/T), with a hand screen-printed cover including templates for making your own scratched rhythms on other records in your collection. The music portion of the LP is unaffected, of course. Includes five templates for common time signatures.

From Temporary Residence:

The Books were one of modern music's most vital players of this still-young millennium. Over the course of four albums in ten years' time, they eschewed genres and pigeonholes so effortlessly and earnestly that they ultimately pioneered a new genre (or three) in the process. And for all the speechlessness their recordings inspired, their videos were every bit as beguiling: a surreal mix of bizarre found footage, home movies, and psychedelic animated imagery that fit their music so well that the two became virtually inseparable in their live performances. Freedom From Expression collects every video ever made by the Books, compiled in chronological order. It's enormously satisfying and fulfilling to map the progression from humble bedroom curiosities through to hilariously warped experimental art films masquerading as music videos. At over two hours in length across 21 videos, it is an invaluable piece of the Books' universe, one that demands constant replays, and delivers as many emotional and cerebral twists and turns as anything else in their absurdly unique and forward-thinking catalog.
