Published Sep 09, 2008Eclectic performance artist Vice Cooler works under many guises. You may know him as the mysterious front-man for noise punks XBXRX. You may also know him for his solo work. Hes perhaps best known as Hawnay Troof, the quirky, experimental electro rapper Cooler has performed as since 2003. Today marks the release of Islands of Ayle, Troofs second album and follow-up to 2006s Dollar And Deed.
The album is a major guest-fest, featuring contributions from members of No Age, Xiu Xiu, High Places, Erase Errata, Stereo Total and the Curtains. But thats not all, dear buyer: a limited edition of the album also features a bonus remix disc with contributions from Lucky Dragons, the Mae Shi, the Soft Pink Truth and others.
Wait, theres more! Troof will be releasing a second remix album on Halloween that will feature remixes submitted from you, the listener. Titled Remix Projection, the album will feature remixes of two tracks that can be downloaded here.
