LP - Units - Animals They Dream About - Concrete Zoo Wax
UNITS unreleased second album Animals They Dream About, co-produced by legendary musician/producer BILL NELSON (Be-Bop Deluxe). Shelved since 1982 due to label issues at the time, Units unreleased sophomore LP Animals They Dream About finally sees the light of day for all to hear. Whilst Digital Stimulation forged a sound now known as synthpunk, this time San Francisco’s Units take things in a slightly more synthpop/new wave direction. At this point a four piece, Units still employed the live components and arch observation that were a key to their contemporary punk tinged electro sound, whilst embracing a greater sense of mood and melody. As the Eighties progressed some of the synth textures present on Animals They Dream About would become commonplace, but the Units were doing it way back in 1981 for the recording of this lost synth gem, making their second LP something of a testament to what could have been, had it not been for the cruel mistress that is the ‘music biz’. CD housed in digipaks. LPs feature a poster and are pressed on either Wild DNA 180-gram colored vinyl (clear with orange/red marble) or Concrete Zoo 180-gram colored vinyl (white with black/gray marble).
