Bright Eyes Noise Floor: Rarities 1998-2005 on 2x 180g Vinyl LP! 

Includes 5 Vinyl Only Bonus Tracks.... 

Noise Floor collects selected Bright Eyes singles, one-offs, unreleased tracks, collaborations and covers recorded between 1998 and 2005. Variously recorded to cassette four-track, minidisc, reel-to-reel tape machine, ADAT and computer, these songs trace Bright Eyes' evolution from basement project to band of international repute. Many of these gems previously lost to out-of-print obscurity are hereby resurrected. 

Um, what is this 'noise floor' business?

'The noise floor is usually considered the highest level of unwanted signal in a given sound,' says Doug Van Sloun, mastering engineer for all the Bright Eyes studio full-lengths since 2000's Fevers and Mirrors. 'It's all of the tape hiss, electronic hum and buzz added together, that makes up the noise floor. Unless of course those signals are desirable, then they're really not noise anymore. From the noise floor down, the noise will be at least as audible as the desired signal.... Certainly some of the recordings on the record have bad signal-to-noise ratios, where the noise can be heard relatively easily during the song, but that doesn't take away from the song. That just reflects the level and quality of the production techniques and tools.'
