Hands Up Who Wants To Die – Nil All LP


The new HUWWTD record was again engineered and mixed by John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum, Black Midi, Caroline) and Ian Chestnutt (Shifting, Cormorant Tree Oh, Crowhammer) at Guerrilla Sound Studios. Mastered by Harvey Birrell. The album expands upon the delicate-brutal spectrum found on their previous LP, 'Vega in the Lyre', pushing further into spacious light and claustrophobic void. They've twisted minimal musical ideas in various directions, with Spud’s sonic orchestration harnessing the exploration of sinuous melodies, elastic time and delicate micropolyphony. Since you asked. For fans of Oxbow, the Jesus Lizard, Cop Shoot Cop and Slint. It is our first release featuring Ten Past Seven’s Rory O’Brien on lyrical duties, five years after our first gig with him at the helm. Themes include strange histories and characters enduring, often out of delusion. The anomalies and warped stories, barely believable. Life as a zero-sum game, brutal and absurd. The artwork is again by Matt Hedigan, our bass player. He and Rory collaborated to distill a large and excellent body of work down to the album layout seen above. Let us know how you feel about it in the comments.

Vinyl-only release, two colour versions to choose from: transparent green swirl and solid red.
