More Info:

Unavailable on vinyl for over 20 years, Sings reign Rebuilder was the stunning 2001 debut LP from Set Fire to Flames. The sprawling, adventurous 13-piece Montreal collective, including 7 members of Godspeed you black emperor!, plus others from bands like A Silver Mt Zion, Fly Pan Am and more. The sole reason FatCat's 130701 imprint was founded, the LP remains an incredible and unique document. It was recorded over a 5-day period in a rickety old house in a communal atmosphere of improvised creative activity, operating on no sleep, confinement and intoxication. It was brilliantly edited to mix post-rock guitar-scapes; extended passages of scratchy, freeform improv; concrete clatterings; atmospheric location recordings; stirring, chamber string arrangements; deep/sparse drones; and Kraut-like, heavily rhythmic workouts. Described on it's release by TimeOut as "one of the most broodingly beautiful, dramatically emotional, hauntingly evocative albums likely to ever scrape at your soul... This record will kill you"; and by Pitchfork as "a gripping testament to the power of emotional expression in music... a marvelously inventive and powerful album."
