MP3: Trans Am - Futureworld
In preparation for next year's 20th anniversary, Thrill Jockey is giving US a gift by reissuing Trans Am's seminal 4th LP Futureworld on vinyl, out Sept 13th. From the label's mouth:
The re-mastered Futureworld LP will be available in a limited edition on September 13, and is available now for pre-order. The LP will be packaged in a high gloss jacket with high gloss inner sleeve, and for the first time will include a download card for the album and two digital bonus tracks:
"Nazi/Hippie Empire"- Studio outtake from the Futureworld session, mixed by James Murphy
"Now You Die, Thriddle Fool!" - originally released by Strength Magazine on a split 7"
Thrill Jockey will be re-pressing and re-issuing other classic vinyl in 2012 as part of its 20th anniversary, including albums by Tortoise and The Sea and Cake.
All sounds very excellent, and Trans Am is playing this record in it's entirely to boot! Pre-order the LP here.
