Featuring 2 Vinyl Only Bonus Tracks!
Critically lauded UK-based The Veils release Total Depravity. The album reunites the band with producer Adam ‘Atom' Greenspan, who's partnership with producer Nick Launay has led to essential releases from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Band Of Skulls and many others. The Veils frontman Finn Andrews and El-P (from Run The Jewels) met up in various locales to collaborate together. Over a two-year period, Total Depravity was recorded at Estúdios Sá da Bandeira in Portugal, Konk Studios in London, Casa Lynch in Los Angeles and El-P's studio in Upstate New York.
Andrews explains,"A crucial aspect of this album has been the involvement El-P who I met outside a bar in downtown LA, and to whom I have fast become very good friends. He introduced himself firstly as a sincere fan of our band, and we got to talking about music and all the good stuff. The very next day we ended up at his friend Wilder's house in Eagle Rock and we wrote and produced the song “Axolotl.” The vocal was sung directly into the keyboard of a laptop and was all completed very quickly. I then began to work with the band back in London and recording songs with Atom Greenspan, some of which were then taken to El-P during breaks in Run the Jewels hefty touring schedule and then messed with them further. We were also fortunate to work with Dean Hurley on one song in LA.”
Total Depravity is presented here on deluxe gatefold double vinyl with two exclusive bonus tracks – "Here Comes The Dead (Live Studio Version)" and "1 Big 1 (Demo)."
