“I missed Half Film by just a hair when I arrived in the greater Bay Area in 2000, but they had left a lasting effect on countless moody guitar acts that could be described as the “SlowCore” scene. I picked up their final 7 inch released on AIP Records in 2000, but was never able to acquire their earlier material in a physical format. Thanks to Hidden Shoal Records, now a whole new generation of depressed-sounding bands can see what Half Film was all about…This is highly recommended stuff for anyone who has a Red House Painters or Low record sitting on their shelf. The fact that these guys don’t have the same fan base as those bands shocks me to no end.” – Some Lost, Some Found
We are damn excited to be able to bring these two amazing albums back into the world and can’t wait to share them with both a new audience and also re-connect with Half Film’s existing fans. The double CD will contain both albums in the one package and will be available for pre-order on the 18th of October with an official release date of October 31st. Don’t forget to download the free single, ‘Machines, Hawks and the Perfect Equation’ from the Hidden Shoal Store while you wait.
