A Retrospective 1998-2008

Before Danny Seim started the acclaimed Portland, OR art rock trio Menomena, he was the sole, prolific, and promotion-averse member of Lackthereof. Seim still finds time for making Lackthereof recordings, which, over the project's ten year history, have ranged from lo-fi to lush, acoustic to synthetic, poppy to noisy. A Retrospective 1998-2008 Or I Was A Christian Emo Twentysomething contains the best of Seim's Lackthereof work, selected by him from among a decade of remarkable electronic beat experiments, lo-fi indie dub, simple acoustic soundscapes, challenging art pieces, and much more, in an eco-friendly package that features 20 of Danny's original illustrations.
