Published Jun 11, 2008If youve been itching to trade in your cold, hard Björk CDs for some big, chunky wax, theres good news for you: One Little Indian is set to reissue much of the back catalog by the ever-eccentric songstress on fancy 200-gram vinyl. On June 30, the label will be dropping limited edition, hand-numbered vinyl pressings from both Björks solo career and as a member of the long-defunct Sugarcubes.
As for the solo work, slated for release are brace yourself Gling-Glo (with Tríó Guðmundar Ingólfssonar), Debut, Post, Telegram, Homogenic, Jóga, Selmasongs, Vespertine, Greatest Hits, Medulla, Drawing Restraint 9, and Volta. And on the Sugarcubes front, there is Life's Too Good, Here Today, Tomorrow, Next Week!, Stick Around for Joy, It's-It, and The Great Crossover Potential. If youre head isnt spinning already, all of the Sugarcubes singles from October 1986 to October 1989 are also being collected and released as a box of either eight seven-inches or six CDs.
All the vinyl reissues will be remastered from the original master tapes and feature some new hi-tech system called Half Speed Direct Metal Mastering, which in a nutshell makes new vinyl sound better than the old stuff, with less crackle and hiss and more sweet, sweet clarity. Oh, and according to One Little Indian, its the "the newest technology in vinyl manufacturing." And you thought vinyl was all about the old school.
