Album artwork for American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You're Too Hideous To Look At Face On by Keiji Haino and Sumac

For American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You're Too Hideous To Look At Face On, Keiji Haino and Sumac met up in Tokyo’s Goksound recording studio to track a series of unrehearsed, completely non-premeditated sessions. Captured across several reels of tape, the collaboration harnessed Haino’s tension-inducing use of empty space on songs like I’m over 137% a love junkie, and it’s still not enough while pushing Sumac’s dissident metal vocabulary on What have I done (I was reeling in something white...). Throughout the course of its hour-plus length, American Dollar Bill pushes and pulls at the strictures of metal and bends the stylistic formalities of improvised music to create a sonic purge unencumbered by convention.

CD - Packaged in a 4 panel mini-LP style gatefold jacket printed on uncoated stock with metallic ink and 4 panel booklet.

LPx2 - Pressed on virgin vinyl, packaged in a wide spine jacket printed on uncoated stock with custom slipcase also printed on uncoated stock with metallic ink.
