This first time vinyl re-issue of Arbouretum's 2007 Thrill Jockey debut Rites of Uncovering is released to coincide with the album's 10th anniversary and the label's 25th anniversary. Rites of Uncovering has been freshly cut to vinyl and is packaged with an insert and free download coupon.

Rites of Uncovering is an album of broad scope, musically, lyrically and texturally. The name alludes to a process of constant questing that is part of Arbouretum's raison d'etre, what mastermind Dave Heumann describes as "a sense of religiosity that is not tied down to a particular moral or ecclesiastical approach, but rather proto-religious feelings such as awe in the face of something greater." In this case, that "something greater" is the music itself and/or the source thereof.

Rites... was influenced either obtusely or more directly (as in the song "Mohammed's Hex and Bounty," based on "Love with a Few Hairs" by Mohamed Mrabet) by the writer Paul Bowles. "There is an effort to ‘get to the bottom of things', to peel back a certain protective veil between an observer perspective and what we could term naked reality," says Heumann. "We are mostly concerned with trying to convey the emotional impact of an experience or state of mind to the listener."
