Published Aug 23, 2013Not only is Canadian sound shaper Tim Hecker gearing up to release his latest album, Virgins, on October 15, he's also looking to the past with a vinyl pressing of his 2004 album Mirages.
The album originally came out on CD through Alien8 Recordings, but this first-ever vinyl pressing will arrive through Kranky. There won't be any bonus material, since the original 11-song tracklist is preserved. The cuts are long enough that the album is split across two LPs.
A press release calls Mirages "a lesson of darkness, a midnight whisper revealing its true essence to the listener: an ambient-death-metal classic in waiting."
Virgins will arrive on the same day as the Mirages reissue, October 15, through Paper Bag/Kranky.
