"Back in print for the first time in many years, it's The Notwist's classic Shrink LP! Originally released in 1998, Shrink was The Notwist's record that set the stage for their groundbreaking Neon Golden LP on Domino. Scanning 50,000+ copies in the U.S., Neon Golden was their first LP to receive wide exposure in America and was given a 9.2 by Pitchfork when it was released, but the true Notwist fans knew that Shrink was the record to own. To quote Pitchfork's review of Neon Golden, 'Shrink was a huge step into the world of electronic music and sounded almost completely unlike anything else made at the time. Mixing rock and pop with free jazz, old-timey folk, jagged minimalist beats and just about anything else you could toss in, I don't have any problems saying now that the record was ahead of its time. To top it off, the shame in it all is that very few took notice; Zero Hour went belly up (rendering 12 and Shrink virtually impossible to find in record shops these days).' With a new record on Sub Pop having scanned 6000+ copies to date, and original copies of Shrink now selling for $100+, we're very excited to be reissuing this incredible release on vinyl. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, now is the time to grab this classic LP!"
