Repeated Measures - Collapse (LP)
When we (New Los Angeles) asked Repeated Measures, aka Chris Norwood, to make us an album, he set out to create a "sci-fi love story," in his words. "A soulful journey through deep space." During the creation of this album, he was hospitalized twice for a medical anomaly that causes one of his lungs to repeatedly collapse. After several surgeries to find and repair the problem, finishing this album served as both a challenge and motivator. Couple that experience with an attempt to take the listener to the place where stars are born, and you have an album that could only be named one thing. Collapse.
The deluxe edition of Collapse features not only a gorgeous pressing of the album on top-quality virgin vinyl, but also contains a 32-page, full-color booklet of entirely original art that was created specifically for this release. It also features custom buttons and a Collapse sticker. Only the first 100 copies will be deluxe edition, so you definitely shouldn't sleep on this one.
