Record Store Day 2012 Black Friday Exclusive! Clubroot's eponymous debut gets a much needed repress on solid white vinyl! If you missed out on the original 2009 vinyl version (which was limited to 450 copies), consider this your second chance so don't blow it. Our original review from '09: The Impressive release from Clubroot on stateside dubstep LoDubs. This album was getting all sorts of head-turns and record checks in the office today, and with good reason. Clubroot's brand of dubstep appeals to the senses with its deep and moody vibe, easily drawing lots of comparisons to Burial's much-lauded style. The dramatic composition and moody atmospherics are a great match for the upcoming cold season (or for the more sensitive dubsteppers), and the clean and intricate rhythms are easy to get used to (much easier than Burial's often abstract and lo-fi style). Essential listening for Burial fans especially. Limited, hand numbered pressing of 200. Highly Recommended.
