This LP on Siltbreezehas been in the works for the better part of a year;its release coincides their first American tour (along withSiltbreeze labelmates, Psychedelic Horseshit).“Borne out of a tradition that lies somewhere between classicdub, experimentalism and post punk, Fabulous Diamondsforeground a style (unique) and substance (intriguing)that come together in a hypnotic frenzy.
