Arizona's own Half String’s "A Fascination With Heights" gets a special reissue treatment by Independent Project Records with this newly remastered and expanded version of the band’s first and only full-length release. Filled with beautiful melodies and harmonies, alternately hard-edged and chiming guitars, "Heights" reveals Half String at their peak in 1995 churning out well crafted songs and their brand of ‘beautiful noise’. Jack Rabid, writing in The Big Takeover has said, "'Shell Life' and especially 'Departures' set Half String off as the finest from the pack of American bands who've heard their share of U.K. post-Valentine pop-noises."
The expanded reissue of "A Fascination With Heights" is presented in the original track sequence from the 1996 compact disc release, along with 9 unreleased recordings. (The vinyl version includes an unlisted additional track.) Also included is a special remix of the title track by Adam Cooper and featuring the vocals of Catherine Cooper of Alison’s Halo.
As an added bonus, this package will include a single with recordings from Half String’s 2012 and 2013 Part Time Punks radio sessions.
Double-album (+ bonus 7” single) and Single-CD (+ bonus “fandisc” style CD) packaged in letterpress-printed die cut discfolios designed by Bruce Licher. 24-page booklet with extensive liner notes, interviews, photos and Half String ephemera. Mastered by Josh Bonati at Bonati Mastering. Features Stinkweeds owner Kimber Lanning on drums!
