This ambitious mini-album is a companion piece the their critically acclaimed 2005 release BLACK SHEEP BOY APPENDIX. It's a condensed alternate vision of that record's imagery and themes with the ultimate intent to exhaust and destroy both. It rounds up and reworks the band's favorite unfinished songs and then punctuates and bookends them in brand new compositions. It's their most adventurous and eccentric work so far; a wild, sloppy, 35-minute rip through a fantastical Technicolor landscape that's crumbling into pieces as it unreels. Suffocating lush string instruments, skittering found sounds, lean rockers, deafening epics and hallucinatory cinematic folk.
