It’s finally complete thanks to our friends who donated to the Kickstarter campaign. This is a limited pressing. Only 300 made. All are hand numbered and each jacket is unique. The boys of Shuteye Unison poured a lot of sweat into this one. Letter pressed, die cut, stamped, glued, licked, caressed, custom book mark and library card, and yes it’s pressed on beautiful Joan Wilder emerald green vinyl. CD included.

Shuteye Unison’s “Our Future Selves” is an album that book-ends a wide range of influences, from the classic John Hughes movie soundtracks to the organic post- punk grooves found on a Fugazi album. 10 tracks total! Packaged in a hand-stamped eco sleeve with insert and sticker.
“Shuteye Unison really have a handle on what they’re doing, and what they’re doing is both inventive and interesting.”
Sporting the vibrancy and texture of Aloha, the austere considerations of Death Cab for Cutie, and occasionally the elaborate, amped-out finesse of Silversun Pickups, Our Future Selves most invigorating moments like “Better Hallway Vision” and “Traffic Hymn” bristle and spark with an air of divinity while remaining firmly grounded.
– BIG TAKEOVER
