UnwoundSpread-500Although Darkscorch Canticles was just issued yesterday, we’re already moving full speed into our next opus, Unwound box #2: Rat Conspiracy. Vice just published a glowing review and interview with Sara and Justin, which reminded us that we needed sit down and detail all the elements of the box. As with Kid Is Gone, we spared no expense combining the ’90s DIY aesthetic with our own, which this video illustrates perfectly:

Let’s go through those contents SLOWLY:

LP 1: FAKE TRAIN

A
Dragnalus
Lucky Acid
Nervous Energy
Valentine Card
Kantina

LP2: NEW PLASTIC IDEAS

C
Entirely Different Matters

D

LP 3: RAT CONSPIRACY

E
Broken E-Strings
Totality

F

Unknown 2

We’ve replicated the covers and inserts for Fake Train and New Plastic Ideas down to the tiniest detail. For Rat Conspiracy, we blew up the cover to their Troubleman Unlimited LP and reprinted an original setlist and flyer.

The  outer box and inner jackets are printed on a 60lb kraft in rich black.

The 24 page page booklet is crammed with period photos (from various house and DIY space shows), and essay by Sara Lund, and a longer piece by David Wilcox.

But wait, there’s more! Order from our website and we’ll send you a bonus LP of Fake Train‘s original Red House demo, cut about a month before the album was tracked. It’s raw and unleashed,  and a bit rough around the edges, but it’s an incredible document of these early days.

BONUS LP: RED HOUSE DEMOS

G
Dragnalus
Pure Pain Sugar
Gravity Slips
Unsympathetica
New Radio Hit

H
Flight Attendant
Valentine Card
Pinwheel Signaling
