New KSV Releases Due to Be Presented Here Tomorrow...

Hello All,

Preparing the Ruine set for release has proved to be extraordinarily arduous - there are 192 separate audio elements alone. We ask that you overlook the slight delay and give the new KSV albums (some of which you've doubtless noticed in earlier posts) a long, passionate smooch when they debut here tomorrow.

Love,

Tom

Any Xiu Xiu fans out there? Loop back to 2006: I was asked to remix a track from their Air Force album for inclusion on a compilation that was issued the following year as Remixed | Covered. For my piece, I opted to rework the entirety of AF. Brought it in at 3:45. Accepted, done. Upon release, the track was credited to TLASILA, perhaps because they didn't want to confuse their indie followers by intimating the lead drooler of REM-lite Brit fops Editors had done the mix. But, yeah, it was all me. I knocked it out over a long weekend at Hnub Ci Vaj and Graham Moore's surburban ATL chateau. (And cheers, Marisa Handren!)
