Published Oct 31, 2011As previously announced, Canadian garage punk duo the Famines are set to release a career-spanning compilation of the band's various seven-inches and cassettes. Titled The Complete Collected Singles, the comp isn't due out until next month, but you can stream the entire thing now online.
According to the press release, "The Complete Collected Singles is a small encyclopedia of minimalist-maximalist modernist noise garage songs from 2008 to present. These songs range from sly to monstrous, teething to biting. Indeed, the Famines are a band working in extremes, pushing two-piece dynamics simultaneously toward new highs and new lows."
Along with the selection of older tracks, the collection will feature two new studio recordings -- "Hi Hi Hi" and "Faux Famous" -- and all are available to check out in the player below.
Mammoth Cave Recording Co. will issue The Complete Collected Singles on November 11. The first pressing is limited to 500. The first 100 pre-orders come with a limited, colour-reversed poster of the sleeve art, and you can grab a copy of the release here.
In support of the comp, the Famines have lined up a Canadian tour, whose dates you can check out here.
