After the End
Merchandise finally release their new album, 'After The End' via 4AD. Like their albums before them, 'After The End' was recorded and produced by the band, this time over a six-month period in the house they share in Tampa. A real achievement in showing what bands can achieve themselves, the only outside influence came when they enlisted mixing help from Gareth Jones - the man famed for his work with Tuxedomoon, Depeche Mode's Berlin Trilogy of Construction Time Again, Some Great Reward, and Black Celebration, and more recently Interpol, These New Puritans and Grizzly Bear. On this album Merchandise has re-invented themselves as a pop band and the album is made up of ten tracks spread across a mean 45 minutes.LP - Initial copies come on Green Vinyl with Download.
