  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    We wanted to do something different for putting New Rituals on record and we feel like this fits that goal pretty well. First of all, it's SQUARE! It fits on a standard turntable though, so don't worry!
    Second, it's not the typical 7, 10, or 12 inch. It's 8". Because of the size, we had to remove "Better" from the track listing. It'll still be included with the other tracks in a digital download though!
    These records are all individually lathe cut, one at a time. Because of that, it's a bit more raw-sounding and has a decent amount of surface noise.
    We've limited these to only 25 hand-numbered copies, so grab yours fast!



    *Note from Precarian Cuts, the record manufacturer:
    Note that this lathe cut record was made one-at-a-time, in real-time, by an actual person from plexiglass using an experimental process and 70 year old machines.
    It is not a pressed record and may have slightly more surface noise or an occasional light distortion in some frequencies, and will sound somewhat different than the original master.
    The volume will also be a little lower than a modern "post-loudness-war" record, so pump up the volume. It won't be audiophile, but it ought to be listenable and sound pretty good considering the circumstances of its birth. It might also require tonearm and anti-skate adjustment in order to track correctly due to hard plastic having slightly shallower grooves than a traditional record.
    If it sounds overly distorted, lift the needle and drop again, or gently nudge the needle to the side. Occasionally, the needle gets caught on the side of the groove or in between the grooves. Do not use automatic start on your player! These records will NOT degrade or harm your needle or cartridge.
    These do not always play well on some low-end turn tables. For some reason, inexpensive cartridges and needles have particular problems with lathe cuts.
