Jewel box repressing. "Originally released as a limited edition souvenir of their 2003 west coast tour, Faux Départ remains one of the strongest releases in the Maher Shalal Hash Baz catalog. Recorded at Dub Narcotic with help from an all-star cast featuring Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) on synthesizer, Chris Cohen (ex-Deerhoof, Curtains) on guitar, Arrington De Dionyso (Old Time Relijun) on bass clarinet, McCloud Zicmuse (Le Ton Mité) on bassoon, and Andrew Maxwell (Open City) on drums, Faux Départ captures the Japanese shambolic-pop legends performing material inspired by the palm trees in L.A., seals & seagulls in Olympia, and the long trek up Route 5 as well as thunderstorms, clouds, wind, and lightning.Recommended for fans of the Raincoats, Belle & Sebastian, and Neutral Milk Hotel."
