Jo tensai-1


Happy to announce the premier of hull down by The Lines, Acute’s latest¬†release. I know it’s been a while, this site and the label have been pretty quiet, and this release has been long in the making. I know a new release from Acute is always super exciting news, but it’s even more exciting when you realize this isn’t your every-day reissue…in fact it’s not a reissue at all.

The Lines started recording the music on hull down after the release of their second and final LP but none of it was ever released. Tweaks were made over the years and perhaps the interested generated by Acute’s FANTASTIC archival releases of The Lines singles and EPs on Memory Span and LPs on Flood Bank helped inspire the band to dust off the old tapes, blend some bits together and come up with what technically is a new/first release of some cool music. It’s a really unique record that shows the band¬†exploring sonically and structurally, from spliced krautrock post-punk to new wave funk to The Lines signature atmospheric ballads and surely has something for everyone. It even has a Tensai Rhythm Machine, as pictured above.

This release will be available soon on vinyl with a limited run of CDs. Check out the release page here which will be updated with further samples and ordering information when available and make sure you follow The Lines on Facebook for more information. In the meantime, check out the first “single”, Single Engine Duster:
