Completely necessary reissue: Ruth – Polaroïd/Roman/Photo
09 Sep 10
Polaroïd/Roman/Photo sold 50 copies when originally released in 1985. It’s getting reissued on November the 22nd on Angular Recordings. It’s a pioneering, schizophrenic, glorious experiment with electronic music from a photographer inspired by Brian Eno, Kraftwerk and The Velvet Underground. It’s influence can be heard all over modern music (try not to think of Metronomy when listening to the title track above), whether modern music knows it or not.
TL;DR? It’s a classic, and you should buy it over here.
