Detachments H.A.L. is released this week on Thisisnotanexit Records. The track originally featured in an Andrew Weatherall produced guise late in 2009 but the band decided to reconfigure the track for their debut album (coming soon) and thus we decided we'd give you a taster of where the album might be headed.
The 12" features this new version of H.A.L. along with a new track called Sands Of Time. Sands Of Time features guest vocals from Heather from Salem. This took place in 2008 so we've been keeping this ready for the right moment to share with people. That time is now. Hope you like it - here at Thisisnotanexit HQ we absolutely love this track and is for us one of the best things we've ever released. Truly stunning.
On the b-side of the 12" is the Ikonika Remix of H.A.L.
Ikonika is one of Hyperdub's rising stars and give H.A.L. a bass destroying refix. Watch yer bassbins.
Also on the b-side is the Andrew Weatherall Disco Dub. This featured on the Circles Remix 12" Part One last year but is now sold out and still in demand so have included it here.
On the download release you can also get the instrumental version of H.A.L. and is available exclusively at Juno Download for 2 weeks - after that the tracks will be available from all download stores.
