Unknown Spin was recorded live to tape by Christina Carter, Tom Carter and Heather Leigh Murray in May, 2002 and released prior to the newly expanded trio's first East Coast/ Midwest tour. Unknown Spin is the first in a series of reissues of Charalambides material on kranky. Originally issued by the band's Wholly Other imprint in a CD-R pressing of 300 [with a track by Scorces], Unknown Spin is now available to a wider audience and will remain in print. Unknown Spin is a great introduction to Charalambides' new modus operandi; an improvised minimalism that comes from guitar, pedal steel guitar and the haunting, wordless vocals of Christina Carter and Heather Leigh Murray. In addition to the excellence of the music itself, Unknown Spin gives listeners some hints of what the upcoming Charalambides studio album might sound like.
