Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line: 10th Anniversary Edition (2xLP - Limited Reissue)

Ships In 7-9 Business Days

The 10th anniversary reissue comes pressed as a 180g 2LP-set, hand-numbered and limited to 2,000 copies worldwide. The vinyl will be bound in a linen-like cover with gold-foil stamping, and features a second LP of eleven additional live and demo tracks, nine of which are previously unreleased.

Barsuk Records presents an expanded 10th Anniversary reissue of Ra Ra Riot's classic 2008 debut The Rhumb Line which Rolling Stone hailed as "a blissful chamber-pop breakthrough" in their 4-star, top 40 albums of the year review. "This has been a fun opportunity for us to consider how long we've been making music together, and how lucky we are because of that. We never want to take anything for granted, and we're so excited to revisit this record – which is still really meaningful to us – and share it again with the world," said bassist Mathieu Santos. Vocalist Wes Miles adds about the reissue: "It's beautifully redesigned by our own Milo Bonacci with a second disc of unreleased gems, live tracks and demos. It's a real alternate universe Rhumb Line double LP."

In the poignant liner notes for the reissue, Santos notes, "The Rhumb Line, like most debuts, is the sound of the band becoming. Along with producer Ryan Hadlock, engineer Matt Doctor and our drummer Cameron Wisch, we spent a total of six weeks living in the studio's converted barn and trying, somehow, to compress two years into ten songs. Naturally, the specter of John [Pike]'s absence permeated every last moment of the sessions, but once we had decided to see the album through – to celebrate the songs we had developed together, to honor the dreams we had all shared – the burden, however slightly, first began to subside. For a moment, there was no baggage, no despair, no expectations – there were just some kids in the woods making music."
