Upsilon Acrux - Radian Futura 180 gram vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed) (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU TW 284
This is a limited edition, unbelievably high-quality, limited edition of 500, 180 gram, beautifully done, lp version of one of our Cuneiform releases which we licensed out to another label. And man, did they do a splendid job. I have to say that the 'tip-on' lp jacket, which is both embossed and lacquered on the embossed sections, is seriously the most beautiful lp printing job in, like, ever!. Hugely and hightly recommended, especially at this special price.

Upsilon Acrux is an instrumental quintet (dual guitars, keyboards, bass and drums). Their music is generally very intense, loud, hard-hitting and unbelivably virtuosic. Upsilon Acrux's music is demanding on many levels, but mostly it demands that you listen to it a number of times before forming an opinion, because only after you've gotten familiar with it can you get past the sheer complexity and onslaught of it all and hear the amazing musicality of what they are doing. This combination of blazingly fast, interwoven musical lines delivered at blinding speed mixed with their unique melodic sense makes Upsilon's music instantly recognizable. They are one of the most creative and original of the shockingly large number of great post-punk, avant-garde rock bands today. This is their sixth album of explosive, intense and surprisingly beautiful intricate, instrumental rock.
