Lansing-Dreiden The Dividing Island on LP
Mexican Summer is excited to reissue the first three records from NY-based Lansing-Dreiden. The art collective has a diverse body of work which consists of forays into music, video, sculpture, drawing and writing. Originally self-released, and later released digitally and on CD between 2004 and 2006 through Kemado Records, these three records have been re-mastered, expanded and pressed to vinyl for the very first time.
The final reissue is Lansing-Dreiden's dense and ambitious second full-length album The Dividing Island (2006) which was lauded by Pitchfork for morphing from "nighttime neon new-wave, replete with spitting drums, Caucasoid-funk breakdowns" into "mellow soul...and watery drone."
The mysterious, oblique nature surrounding Lansing-Dreiden has not only earned them critical acclaim but an appropriately cult-like fanbase. As they have stated, "all projects are fragmentary, mere stones in a path whose end lies in a space where the very definition of ‘path' paths." These reissues seek to illuminate these paths for original and new listeners alike.
