WILLIAM BASINSKI - MELANCHOLIA VINYL RE-ISSUE (GATEFOLD)
GATEFOLD VINYL RE-ISSUE
Release Date: 21st April 2023
"Originally released a year after the increasingly iconic The Disintegration Loops, a decade later Melancholia still stands as William Basinski's second most beloved album. Originally released on vinyl to commemorate its 10-year anniversary, we now have this limited repress. Remastered from the original recordings and pressed onto audiophile-quality 100% pure virgin vinyl, this limited-edition vinyl reissue is packaged in a stunning gatefold jacket featuring all-new artwork. It is truly a sight and sound to behold. Like many of Basinski's most soul-stirring works, Melancholia began as a series of short tape loops captured in the early 1980s. Basinski then stored them away for decades, 3 revisiting them at a different time in his life, at which point they took on a stunning new sound all their own - one that many consider to be among the finest of the past decade.
