First Relic is inspired by Alex Klein's fascination with ancient archaeology, especially sites around the world that seem to show advanced stonework beyond what was believed capable at the time. Parallels of this can be heard among the compositions, with shamanic vocal chops that counter skippy, resonant synthesis.
Underpinning the release is an abundance of analogue percussion (jammed live and on the fly) giving a hint of his impressive ability as a live performer. The record is pristinely mixed-down and demonstrates a breadth of technical ability many years in the making.
On remix duties SUBMIT hail up longtime co-conspirator Throwing Snow (Houndstooth) and Scuba collaborator Lawrence Hart (Hotflush).
