Tortoise - Beacons of Ancestorship Remixes Eye / Mark Ernestus 12"

Supposed to come out today, but not yet available to order online yet at Thrill Jockey is the follow up the release of their first new studio album in five years. Like many remix editions from the past, Tortoise now return with a two song remix 12" of songs from "Beacons of Ancestorship". Side A features none other than Eye from Boredoms doing a remix of the album's opening track "High Class Slim Came Floatin' In". Side AA features the legendary dub/version master Mark Ernestus of Basic Channel and Rhythm & Sound doing a Version of the track "Gigantes".

Pressed in an edition of 1,500 copies for the world and cut at 45rpm this 12" is sure to sell out instantly (as did the vinyl edition of Beacons).

The 12" is presented in a proper LP jacket and features black and white photography from Andrew Paynter. Andrew's photograhy was also featured on the Beacons of Ancestorship jacket and he was behind the incredible video for the song "Prepare Your Coffin".

So, I guess, all we can do is check Thrill Jockey daily for this 12" to surface.
