British alt-rock supergroup Minor Victories (featuring vocalist Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), guitarists Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai) and Justin Lockey (Editors), and film-maker James Lockey)- present Orchestral Variations, instrumental interpretations of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut, pressed on 180 gram double vinyl.

"I don't really know that much about music in terms of theory, notes, scales etc. I generally just fuck about with things until it sounds right to my ear... So I guess to call this album ‘Orchestral Variations,' it would have to be in the loosest ever sense of the term. When we were putting together the Minor Victories album, a lot of the music came about through string arrangements, motifs, melodies, counter melodies and other such noodlings I was messing about with.

"This record kind of takes it back to that initial point, and re-imagines the whole record from that standpoint – the bare bones, the hint at a vocal melody, not relying on any backbeat – but stripping the songs back to the base elements and then piece-by-piece making an entirely new record. It takes the songs and elements around them and the phrases into a new place, mostly born out of hindsight and I guess a curiosity to fuck around with it all long enough until it sounded right to my ear. From all that an entirely new record was formed. It's not a remix album, or b-sides...it's just another way at looking/hearing things." – James Lockey
