It's been some time since we heard from Edmonton's Faunts, but the electro-leaning shoegazers are finally following up their 2009 album Feel.Love.Thinking.Of. with an EP of archival recordings. Left Here Alone drops tomorrow (November 20) through Friendly Fire, and you can stream the whole thing on Exclaim.ca.
The four songs here date back to the time between 2005's High Expectations/Low Results and 2007's M4. They were originally intended for a full-length, but lineup changes and film score opportunities meant the that songs were eventually abandoned.
A press release notes, "Left Here Alone is an offering of a handful of unreleased yet essential songs that fill in the empty spaces between High Expectations/Low Results and M4 in Faunts' evolutionary map. Listening to this record is like travelling through the band's back catalogue."
Listen to the expansively atmospheric songs below.
