This is a new one, in name at least. An 'alternate' version album from the School of Seven Bells is what is being released, for last year's SMASH HIT Alpinisms. Yes, we are certain that it's just a pretty much re-badged 'outtakes' sort of record, but they're calling it an alternate version, so it'd be rude not to at least humour them.
The re-worked record will be released on November 23 (NEXT WEEK) and is available through download via the web net only. Ermmmm, here's what you're gonna get on the record:
- Wired For Light (Live Drum Version)
- Half Asleep (Alternate Version)
- White Elephant Coat (Early Demo Version)
- Caldo (Live on Stereogum’s Decomposed)?
- Sempiternal (Alternate Version)
- Iamundernodisguise (Vocal Mix I)
- My Cabal (Early Mix 07)
- Connjur (Alternate Version)
- For Kalaja Mari (Drum Outtake Mix)
