Ipecac Recordings will issue Temporal, a retrospective collection of unreleased ISIS rarities, remixes and videos this November.
Temporal spans the seminal band’s entire discography with inclusions from Mosquito Control to the band’s final full-length, Wavering Radiant.
Aaron Harris comments on the release: “It was fun and also very nostalgic collecting material for this release. I hear our catalogue differently now that I’m not living with these songs day to day. This is a special collection of outtakes, demos, unreleased tracks and videos, some of which I think we even forgot about.”
I read about that on Lambgoat. I'd like to be stoked about this, but I'm just not. Maybe it's because, to me, Isis has always been a band that is best listened to in the context of an album, not a compilation.
I'm loving it. I think I might like the demo versions of the previously released songs better than the original ones. Especially the demo of Ghost Key. So good. And the acoustic version of 20 Minutes/40 Years is jizz worthy.
