Off the forthcoming debut 5 track single, befittingly entitled 1, we give you Less Unless for free download. This song, along with 4 others, will be released on March 8th on strictly limited run of 100 screen-printed brand-new-old-stock reel-to-reel style cassettes, in 5 resplendent colours! (As featured on the cover-art) It will also be released on label 5000 digitally for less nostalgic citizens through the usual outlets. Can't wait? Get the whole thing today directly and exclusively from us here. You can listen to the whole thing right now just there to the right in the sidebar, go on, push play ===>

We don't have a music video for this song so it's best to imagine one. Personally we recommend imagining a beach party being hit by a tsunami, so try that first. Or a dashing commercial airline pilot spilling his Mojito on the control panel mid-flight causing a wholesale short-circuit also works well. Let us know if you think of any others. Enjoy!

Quotes from some enlightened folk:

Trust us when we say you really need to hear this lot

...This is a fucking great song. Anyone who tells you otherwise either doesn’t know their music or lives under ten million rocks...
- The Photon God

...‘Less Unless’ is like a textbook that tells you about the future, highlighting all the important parts in fluorescent yellow pen...
- Mess and Noise

...Civil Civic, a little known but immensely talented outfit....
- The Tape Is Not Sticky

...If you, somehow, don’t find yourself moving to the wonderfully distorted bass guitar, catchy guitar plucks, and heavy bass hits of Less Unless, then go sit in the corner and think about what you did wrong in life...
- Fresh Press Vinyl

...for those who’re sick of Fleet Foxes’ pretty six-part harmonies, and want something to dance like an epileptic to...
- Spillball

...Once it kicks in you're hooked...
- Quite All Right

    I drop a leave a response whenever I like a article on a website
    or I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    It is caused by the passion displayed in the post I
    read. And after this post "DEBUT RELEASE '1' IS HERE!".
    I was moved enough to post a leave a responsea response :-P
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of the responses appear like they
    are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites, I'd like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
