June 2 street date. Limited edition vinyl reissue of Death From Above 1979's debut album, "You're A Woman, I'm A Machine", which capitalized on the rock revivalism dominating the early '00s music press, while anticipating the reign of bass-bin-rattling dance music over the rest of the decade. In the red assaults like "Turn It Out" and "Pull Out" highlighted bassist Jesse Keeler and drummer/vocalist Sebastien Grainger's post-hardcore pedigree, but with the synth-sweetened groove of "Romantic Rights" and the cowbell-clanking "Sexy Results", the duo sculpted their marble-slab heaviness into deviously dissonant disco.
November 2 street date. Death From Above’s 2002 debut EP Heads Up is a noise rock micro-opus that focuses its bratty punk ire toward the downtown Toronto nightlife and social scene where the duo plotted behind a screen of gobo-lit cigarette smoke. With one foot in suburban hardcore, and the other on the dance floors of Mod Nights and Garage Rock rave-ups, Death From Above’s critique is as much self-loathing as social commentary. Originally released in limited quantities via Ache Records, Heads Up is now available on vinyl from singer/drummer Sebastien’s own Ancient Fashion Records for the first time in over a decade. Manufactured in Detroit by Third Man Pressing for maximum fidelity.
