A3 The Bells
B1 This Decline
B2 From Foam
This pioneering American dark-wave band’s 1989 debut wasn’t officially released until a few years after their classic Ionia album. Wake has seen a couple different mixes and releases on Projekt and Orphanage, with a recently self-issued cassette paving the way for its first and only vinyl edition on Cercle Social Records.
On Wake, John Fair and Mike VanPortfleet crafted dreary yet mesmerizing songs that roughly laid the blueprint for an extensive and powerful discography to come. Lycia, from their inception, we’re unique beyond words and it’s our pleasure to give this landmark release a deluxe treatment.
Limited edition of 200 on raspberry swirl vinyl.
