spoils & relics: sins of omission

Given two sides of untitled vinyl to stretch out on, the enigmatic Spoils & Relics lay out their wares for all to see. Here we have shortwave trawls picking up single, impossible-to-translate words, slight squeaks, wheezes and heaves, sounds of budgie cages being shaken in empty houses, lo-fi electronic squawk, bottles being kicked around a stone floor, parps culled from small boxes with switches on them, electro-acoustic dub, dried peas rattling around a tin, a mass beetle exodus ... or none of the above. The mood in places is austere, in others noisy, in some contemplative. This is their third release on Harbinger Sound -- after sharing one side of a split LP with BRB/Voicemail and having a single all to themselves, they've finally got the LP they deserve. Working in ever darker and harder-to-define corners means Spoils & Relics are refining their craft, making their outings a greater pleasure each time.
