Hidden Shoal Recordings is proud to announce the official release and digital availability of I Razor, the soundtrack to the no-budget experimental feature film of the same name directed by Todd Tobias. The album comprises challenging, playful, twisted, murky and downright beautiful pieces of music by Todd Tobias and Circus Devils, featuring vocals from Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices) as well as instrumental versions of some of the Devil’s existing songs. The album is a cinematic feast within itself, uncompromising, redemptive and always engaging. It weaves lo-fi keyboards through shimmering guitar textures, scatters unsettling rhythms across ethereal synthscapes, and unveils kaleidoscopic new treasures among its 30+ tracks with each listen.
“Wistful, pretty, and melancholy, Pollard lets loose a truly affecting melody with a wonderfully natural delivery. It’s been said over and over again that he makes it look easy — and even after years and years of songwriting, tracks like ‘You First’ indicate that he’s far from reaching a brick wall.” – Pitchfork on Circus Devils Ringworm Interiors
The album is available now in digital formats (Mp3 and FLAC) and on CD through Hidden Shoal. The CD version of the album comes as a limited edition custom package and includes an immediate digital download of the album in FLAC or MP3 format. The I Razor film is also available for order on DVD (including a DVD+CD deal). Head to the Hidden Shoal Store for all the details.
