For Hero For Fool



Product Details
With one foot in Oakland CA and one foot in the cosmos, Subtle is one of the most supremely inventive groups working today. Imagine Gnarls Barkley jamming with the Beta Band, Devo partying with Outkast, or George Clinton landing the mothership on the Def Jux catalogue, and you might get an inkling of the width and breath of Subtle's ambitions. Following their critically-acclaimed debut The New White, the band overcame a tragic van crash (leaving member Dax Pierson a quadriplegic...visit to record For Hero For Fool, their most adventurous and clear-hearted achievement yet. Featuring avant hip hop masterminds Jel and Doseone of cLOUDDEAD and Anticon, For Hero For Fool is at once iconoclastic and accessible, blending iridescent psychedelia with electronic collages and bop poetry.
Having recently completed an 80 date world tour, Subtle have a great profile at the moment. The band's core members have worked with Beck, Bjork, Mike Patton, The Notwist, Boards Of Canada, Aesop Rock, Prefuse 73, Wolf Parade and Buck 65. Soft Pink Truth (one half of Matmos) remixed a track off this record, and tastemaker magazines like Wire, Mojo and Q can't rave enough about this band. Their Wishingbone DVD won best music video at the British Animation Awards 2006. A truly epic live experience, Subtle will be touring to support this album throughout the US and Europe in the Fall. Astralwerks in partnership with Lex will be implementing a comprehensive promotional push at press, radio and retail around the launch of this exciting and innovative record.
