Also in the works is a repressing of Gang Gang Dance’s God’s Money on LP. The album, which was released in 2005, has been out of print on LP for some time.This will be available to coincide with the tour. Here is a small sampling of what people had to say about the record at the time:

“‘God’s Money’ is an album of whims and metamorphoses…thoroughly enveloping, with a mesmerizing, vertiginous charm.”
-New York Times

“God’s Money never suspends movement: It continues to pulse and breath even in its quietest moments. And in each piece, there exists an amazing freeform beauty as well as a great sense of rhythm and melody hidden within ostensible chaos.”
