A Year of Wreckage

Vinyl Editions: Utopian Frequencies/Disquiet



Utopian Frequencies and Disquiet are two new albums that we carefully and lovingly put together from our A Year of Wreckage archive. The songs were mixed by Dave Sanderson, and everything has been re-mastered especially for vinyl at Abbey Road by Frank Arkwright (who mastered Wild Light, No Man’s Sky, replicr, 2019). They both come with gorgeous, tactile, embossed artwork from long time 65 comrade Caspar Newbolt. You gotta touch it to believe it.

This is a short run released via Dustpunk Records, our own mostly-dormant label. 500 of each album. Rather than trying to choose specific A Year Of Wreckage e.ps to release, we picked songs from a wide range of them to make two full-length albums that work as standalone listening experiences. They might be old songs for some of you, but heard in a new way. And if you never had the time, inclination, patience or cash to get fully absorbed in the whole AYOW archive, then here are two slices of it in more immediate, digestible chunks.

RENOISER

Brand new 65daysofstatic track on a compilation of algorithmic(ish) muscians from the north of England
There's a brand new 65daysofstatic track called 'renoiser' on a compilation of algorithmic(ish) muscians from the north of England.

This record was put together by the Sheffield-based live-coding wizard Yaxu (Alex McLean) in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

We are flattered to have been asked to contribute. The compilation is pay-what-you-feel. It is available to pre-order from its Bandcamp page now, and released Friday, 6th November.

2021 is the new 2020

ALL LIVE SHOWS RESCHEDULED TO 2021.


Ok. This is a major shift. We will never have gone this long between live shows since we started being a band, so we very much feel your frustration. This is not how we hoped the replicr, 2019 live shows were going to go.

But there’s still that whole global pandemic going on, and the idiots in charge of the two countries we had shows in have been handling it with an audacious mix of incompetence and villainy.
 
Our hope is that pushing the shows back until 2021 will mean that no further changes will become necessary. ALL TICKETS WILL REMAIN VALID FOR THESE SHOWS. And who knows, maybe by 2021 65daysofstatic gig tickets will be the new global currency. Stupider things are happening this year. So it’s worth holding on to them, it will help us and the promoters out a lot. (Although if you’ve lost your job/need the cash, you can seek refunds from point of purchase).

Music for Bail Funds

Black Lives Matter
Two new releases out today, Friday 5th June. This is a day when Bandcamp will waive their cut of sales, so it seemed like a good day to drop these two releases and for those 24 hours 100% of the sales will be donated to various bail funds, mutual aid groups and racial justice organisations across the U.S. For a full list of where contributions will go, or to donate directly, check HERE. Otherwise, we’ll update this page tomorrow with links to the new releases.

The first release is a Mogwai remix of Five Waves from our album, replicr, 2019. The second is a full length, high-quality live recording of one of our first Decomposition Theory shows from 2017.

Both releases are pay-what-you-feel, so even if you can’t afford to spare much, a little still counts. And if you’ve got plenty of disposable income, go large!

Solidarity to all the protestors across the globe. Black Lives Matter. Another world is possible. No justice, no peace. 65.
