After a teaser video three days ago on their Instagram page, the anomaly band Seefeel are back with a set of multiple reissues. Originating from London, this alternative outfit have delivered music in an amalgamation of genres including dream-pop, electronic, trip-hop and shoegaze. An announcement last night has come as exciting news for any fans of the band that are seeking out their long-lost physicals, with many of the original pressings reaching extortionate resale rates. Restocks include their cult classic sophomore album ‘Succour’ released in 1995, and their third album ‘(CH-VOX)’ released under Richard D. James’ (Aphex Twin) Rephlex Records.
As well as those represses, the band are releasing ‘Rupt and Flex (1994-96)’ which is described in their Bandcamp description as “An anthology of Seefeel’s 94 – 96 work made for Warp and Rephlex, including their out-of-print studio albums Succour and (Ch-Vox), two non-album EPs, Starethrough and Fracture/Tied, and 22 bonus tracks from the Seefeel archives, most of which have been previously unreleased.” The 43 track anthology will be available to purchase through download and a CD “housed in bespoke packaging conceived by The Designer’s Republic”. This 4 CD boxset includes all album artwork and an additional fold out poster.
All of the reissues will be available at Warp Records and other stocking retailers on 14th May, with the following release on Bandcamp the same day. Other streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify are in the works as well. A surprise release has emerged today from the vault for everyone to listen to on streaming. The song is a remix of the 1994 track ‘Spangle’ by acclaimed Rochdale electronic duo and fellow Warp Records signee Autechre. The twelve minute ambient filled journey gives us a taster of the load of unreleased material to come out of these reissues. Listen to the track today.
