As part of their 20th anniversary celebratory series, Suicide Squeeze are proud to offer a special vinyl repress of ‘Interpretaciones Del Oso’ on turquoise and gold swirl coloured vinyl with updated artwork, printed inner sleeves and a download card.
Minus The Bear’s sophomore album ‘Menos El Oso’ was a significant departure from their debut fulllength ‘Highly Refined Pirates’. The playful guitartapping, fluid production and nostalgia-bating melodies were largely excised for air-tight drums, glitchy guitar samples and an overall air that was more of a futurist interpretation of sepia-toned noir than their predecessor’s contemporary Polaroid romanticism. It was an album that already sounded like a dark, stuttering remix of their previous efforts.
However, Minus The Bear were still - in both spirit and instrumentation - a rock band and those staccato riffs and dance beats practically begged to be re-examined from behind the producer’s console. So the band enlisted a team of underground remix artists to reinvent each of ‘Menos El Oso’’s eleven tracks. The resulting ‘Interpretaciones Del Oso’ is a wild and imaginative ride through a dizzying array of sonic reconstructions.
P.O.S. makes ‘Drilling’ a club banger; Fog turns ‘Memphis & 53rd’ into the kind of murky gloom churned out by reclusive black metalhead Xasthur; Dälek producer Oktopus transforms ‘The Game Needed Me’ into a dreamy druggy daze; Battles’ Tyondai Braxton deconstructs ‘Fulfill The Dream’ into a send-up of classic Warp Records IDM.
