STREAM: School of Seven Bells' "Alpinisms (Deluxe Version)"
School of Seven Bells’ debut is an electronically enhanced pop record of dizzying highs and claustrophobic lows, whose painstaking conception shows in its detail-laden crevices. On Alpinisms ’ best tracks, Benjamin Curtis constructs layers of shoegazing, moire-patterned guitars, while sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza intertwine their near-identical voices like the fingers of praying hands. Throughout, the whole heavenly affair is tethered to the ground with a glitchy, tribal thwomp.
Due to popular demand and the record’s near-universal acclaim, we’re re-releasing Alpinisms in collaboration with Vagrant Records. The digital-only Alpinisms (Deluxe Version) features nine bonus tracks including demo versions, alternate takes, and new mixes of songs from the album.
