Beauty Pill - Describes Things As They Are 2LP (Findings Records/USA)
Clear vinyl, double LP reissue.
‘Beauty Pill’s ambitious double album Describes Things As They Are was originally released in 2015 to rave reviews. NPR Music, Rolling Stone and Magnet Magazine all named it as one of the best albums of the year, the latter linking the album to “both Revolver and Stankonia…”! The album’s status has only grown as TIME Magazine recently listed it as one of the ten best albums of the decade. Finally reissued in both a beautiful double vinyl package featuring a unique one-time-only variant. Includes unreleased material and an amazing remaster by Chris Shaw.
NPR All Things Considered: "A headphone experience rich with ambitious sounds that are truly lived in."
Rolling Stone: "An easy record to fall in love with. One of the 15 best albums of the year."
Robert Christgau: "Grade A. Gentle tunes and surprising sounds contextualize lyrics that both parse and come at you from trick angles."
Noisey: "One of the most unique and engrossing albums of 2015."
Magnet Magazine: "Album of the year. Takes a sledgehammer to boundaries and orthodoxies. Recalls both Revolver and Stankonia..."
Pitchfork: "Delicacy and daring."
Bob Boilen NPR Music: "Quite brilliant."
