Beautifully constructed beatcraft from Prefuse 73 – blending beats with keys, odd string flourishes and atmospheric elements as impeccably as ever! Prefuse is still getting more and more tuneful in the melody department, but the album has it's share of barbed and jittery moments, with titles that include "Beaten Thursdays", "Aborted Hugs", "Class Of 73 Bells" feat School Of Seven Bells, "Girlfriend Boyfriend", "Smoking Red" feat John Stanler, "Let It Ring", "17 Second Interlude", feat Tobias Lilja, "Spaced + Dissonant", "Preperation Outro Version" and more. Comes with 14 track bonus disc Interregnums with the titles "For Her Non-Place", "Preparation 1", "Thorough Light", "Spacious And Dissonant Part 2", "Pitu", "The Ground We Lift", "Prepared As It Was" and more!  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

A moody, uncompromising album of experimental, yet accessible and downright hypnotic textures from Prefuse 73 – with less fractured, stuttering beatcraft and more spacious, droning atmosphere! It's pretty tripped out stuff for a record as Prefuse 73, which makes it all the more rewarding. A ... CD
