Format: 180gram Limited English Edition (hand numbered)
Dig Vinyl, Liverpool’s underground record emporium, is pleased to announce its second vinyl release building on the success of the sold out Nightdubbing – Frontline LP. The origins of I’r are steeped in Welsh mythology with a very limited pressing appearing in handpicked local shops back in 2014 with very few excursions across the border. Whilst on a digging trip in the Caernarfon area the Dig boys were lucky enough to pick up a copy and proceeded to fry their monkey minds while shacked up in a Bethesda cabaret bar! Therein followed a series of cross border trips where agreement was made to release a very limited English edition.
Bür Hoff Bau sit somewhere between the real and the imaginary.
I’r is a deep mystical blend of motorik beats, hazed-out psych, primitive electronica and one man – in a cabin too long – vocals. It talks of time past, time present and endless gazes into a heritage that spoke beauty to the world through dirty fingernails and endless alcoholic mists (apologies to Peter Finch). It draws you in through its beauty yet holds you a little too tight. Standout tracks are Hummelsong, Angelika and Y Gofid.
I’r will be launched at Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia, Friday, Sept 22nd 2017 – 100 vinyl copies only.
PRE-ORDERS: WILL BE SENT FIRST CLASS MAIL 21 SEPT 2017 OR COLLECT FROM OUR SHOP (DIG VINYL) FROM FRIDAY, 22 SEPTEMBER 2017
