This new version contains a 2020 remix of the hit 'Field Recordings of Animal Noises'. It's missing the start bit, but the solo is louder!
It also starts with the previous download-and cassette-only starting track 'covered in shit'.
This is the sophomore mini album from Christchurch's geek trash duo X-Ray Charles. Check out xraycharles.bandcamp.com
for more awkward nerd scum concerti. Here is some praise for Selph Titled thus far:
"...Damaged jangly guitar pop, pop songs buried beneath fuzz and wrapped in a lo-fi recording, the sort of pop which while it might be as hooky as radio pop, isn't as immediate due to this aesthetic, but once you unpack it, you're like, oh shit!" (Martyn Pepperell, Rip It Up)
"This is a fantastic unknown record, something that most should, but won’t know about. It makes lo-fi music shake and jam in the most smack-addled way possible. " -Ryan Saar, SoundlySounds (Australia)
