limited edition (5000 copies) box set version containing exclusive deluxe packaging and sviib tarot cards plus a bonus cd featuring an alternative version of the band's debut album 'alpinisms'. experimental dream-pop group school of seven bells release their new dazzling and beautiful album 'disconnect from desire,' on full time hobby. the album, produced by band member benjamin curtis and mixed by jack joseph puig, was recorded in the band's home studio and mixed in los angeles at ocean way recording. 'disconnect from desire' is a tremendous leap forward for the band musically, evident in all elements of their intricate and multi-layered sound. further, the unique experience of playing live allowed them to step out of their sometimes-insular creative process, and to discover and explore a newfound connectivity with listeners. this connection to the external world is reflected throughout the new album and indicative of the trio's development. "from the start, we knew we wanted to make a record that connected on more of a direct and personal level than we ever had before," says curtis, "it's a complete account of our lives this past year, and it's crazy how taking an honest look at yourself can tell you the most about the world around you." school of seven bells, composed of benjamin curtis (formerly of secret machines) and identical twins alejandra and claudia deheza, (formerly of on!air!library!) released their debut album 'alpinisms' in 2008.
