Dirtnap Records is proud to bring you the second album from Portland dark-punk kings! Past and present members of Portland hardcore mainstays such as REMAINS OF THE DAY, HELLSHOCK, WARCRY, LEBENDEN TOTEN, and others pull a 180 and dish out ten tracks of icy, ominous post-punk. Since their last release, THE ESTRANGED have dialed back the explicit aggression of their early singles a bit, and dialed up the textured, atmospheric, layered sounds of prime ‘80s deathrock / post-punk. A little less US influence, a little more UK, a little less Wipers, a little more Cure / Chameleons UK / Joy Division, etc. The Subliminal Man was painstakingly, impeccably recorded at Type Foundry Studios in Portland and features eight new ones, a re-recording of "Statue In A Room" (originally released as a split 7-inch with Autistic Youth) and a rather stunning cover of The Flys' 1978 classic "Love And A Molotov Cocktail." You need this. LP includes a download coupon.
