By Gregory AdamsWith Kylesa still touring behind their game-changing 2010 album Spiral Shadow, it's unclear just when the Savannah, GA-based psych-sludge ensemble will deliver their next record. With that in mind, the band are prepping a few vinyl reissues from their back catalogue, in case you missed out on the LPs the first time around.
First up is a newly pressed version of the troupe's sophomore effort To Walk a Middle Course, which arrives through Alternative Tentacles June 26. The 2005 LP was remastered by the band, and according to a press release, "this window into the collective mind of Kylesa provides a healthy glimpse of where they came from and where they were headed."
The group's follow-up LP Time Will Fuse Its Worth will also be reissued on June 26. The album, originally issued in 2006, was the first to feature Kylesa's two-drummer lineup, making for "a thicker, punchier, heavier rhythm section."
Exclaim! lauded the album's genre-blending style, which hinted melded "female-fronted crust punk, early-era Neurosis, and that odd, difficult subgenre of Bay Area hardcore characterised by Prank Records bands."
Both reissues come with new album art, which you can see above.
