|sElf Gizmodgery Limited Blue Vinyl LP
15 year anniversary of sElf’s groundbreaking LP, Gizmodgery – released for the first time on vinyl.
Originally released in 2000, Gizmodgery was recorded entirely on children's toy instruments purchased in toy stores. Upon its original release, Pitchfork wrote about the single, Trunk Fulla Amps: 'Verse by verse, Mahaffey trades off emulating his heroes (Queen, ELO... Danzig?), a sign of his wry sense of humour. The instrumental bridge is simply beautiful, an unexpected but somehow perfect transition into a smooth Brazilian-flavoured interlude on subtly rhythmic guitar and an uptempo bossanova beat. Bonus track 'Resurrect' was previously only available on Japanese release.
