Early Preoccupations cassette being released on vinyl

News / Preorders / June 20, 2017

Cassette, an early Preoccupations release (then known as Viet Cong), which was, you guessed it, a tour-only cassette, is now available at vinyl over at Jagjaguwar.

Over the course of a year, Matt Flegel and Scott Munro worked in their basement studio with a mess of old and run down equipment to build a set of fresh material. Joined by bandmates Daniel Christiansen and Michael Wallace, the band completed work on an debut cassette. What emerged from the studio was a mixture of sharply-angled rhythm workouts and euphoric ‘60s garage pop-esque melodies, balanced with a penchant for drone-y, VU-styled downer moments, and became a hard-to-find classic.

You can stream 3 songs from the release below. The pressing is being released on August 4th.
