RIYL: Duster, Codeine, Bedhead

Label: Numero Group

Known by the faithfuls as the companion piece to Duster’s cultified 1998 debut album Stratosphere, Valium Aggelein was the space capsule that went off the planned orbit and burrowed into the cosmic unknown. A mostly improvised collection of 15 skeletal but spaced-out jams, Hier Kommt Der Schwartze Mond was 1998’s Dark Side of the Moon. Until now, the OG vinyl release of this monstrously underrated masterpiece has been impossible to obtain without some deep pockets. Until now…

Numero Group, the folks behind Duster’s recent box set, are reissuing and remastering the original record and…AND…adding an additional 15 bonus tracks on a second LP. Holy smokes. Yeah, you need this one. These WILL sell out, probably by the end of the day. You’ve been warned. Listen to the entire album below.

The Details

Remixed and remastered from the original 16 track analog tapes, the 1998 album has been adjoined by 15 period-appropriate bonus tracks. A fuzzy masterpiece, hidden in plain sight, by the most important slowcore band of all time.
