Boris - The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked Extra - LP Test Pressing
20 copies pressed, includes letterpress insert & Chronicle slipcase, only 20 copies of this LP pressed on black vinyl
The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked Extra was released for Boris’ 2014 North American tour. It is the fourth and final installment of the Thing Which Solomon Overlooked series and includes a slipcase intended to house all four LPs in the Chronicle; volume one being released by Kult of Nihilow in 2004, two and three by Conspiracy in 2006. All of the packaging was letterpress printed, diecut and hand-assembled at Studio on Fire in Minneapolis. 400 copies were pressed on transparent yellow vinyl.
Like other albums in the Chronicle series, this final release makes use of the raw, unsettling drone elements that are Boris’ trademark. But just when the listener becomes enveloped by entrancing swirls of loose, collapsible, organic textures, Extra then takes a turn toward a different style embraced by this experimental Japanese band, incorporating tensely buoyant psychedelic rock ballads and jazzy improvisations.
Guest artists: Michio Kurihara guitar, Seiichiruo Morikawa vocal, Nene & Nana vocal
