OXES - The Fourth Wall
Cat. no: CS003X
Release Date: 27th November 2020
OXES (1998-2011) was an experimental, instrumental trio hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, comprising of guitarists Marc Miller and Nat Fowler, and drummer Christopher Freeland.
With performance-art tinged of instrumentals that incorporated wireless guitars and stand-up comedy, they describe their music as “heavy metal tone poems.” Now they commemorate the 20-year anniversary of their first LP with a gatefold double vinyl remastered by Sarah Register. ‘The Fourth Wall’ features the original self titled album and the group’s first Peel Session - which was previously unavailable in high fidelity - as well as a booklet featuring never-before-seen photos and texts about their history.
The cover, which was painted by Christopher Freeland, reinterprets OXES’ original cover photograph by Eric Wareheim. Available on double vinyl in a superb gatefold cover with a matte finish and a 12-page booklet, all housed in a futuristic aluminium sleeve.
