TWO WORDS THAT DESCRIBE THE SAME THING: NEGATIVLAND’S NEW ALBUM IS TRUE FALSE

Help us help you hear Negativland’s new album, True False.

Your purchase today of this double vinyl album (a single plastic CD will be available later on) will help fund the printing and pressing costs of getting this thing made and into your hands by early fall. Your advance purchase of the LP directly from us will come with special “advance-purchase-only” thank you goodies and will ship to you on October 23rd, 2019. Scroll down for more details.

What you’ll get with your pre-order

All of these extras will come only with advance purchases of the first 500 copies of the vinyl edition (and a purchasing tip – the vinyl version comes with extra tracks not heard on the CD).

The shipping date will be October, 22nd, 2019 with an official release date of October 25, 2019.

What is True False?

It’s more than two things, and as of 2019 it’s also a new album by the semi-legendary multimedia collective known as Negativland. True False is a full length return to all original music that you could almost mistake for actual songs — albeit ones sung by dozens of sampled vocalists who have never met — and is a prime example of what we used to call experimental music, but now just call social media. It’s your own inescapable subjectivity made catchy as we witness the entrenched political beliefs of left and right cleanly switching sides in under one generation. It’s the first Negativland album to come with a lyric sheet, and a reminder that we need more than just one memory before we can safely tell anyone else that this is not normal.

Is this a concept album?

The first of two interconnected double albums, True False musically tackles concerns that will be familiar to any surviving fans of the band: our nervous systems, our realities, and the evolving forms of media that inevitably insert themselves between the two. A series of seemingly random topics are slowly woven together: shootings, bees, the right’s rules for radicals, climate control, dogs pretending to be children, the oil we eat, and the right of every American to believe whatever they want to believe — your brain’s ear lets nothing remain entirely random. It’s not the content, it’s the edit that shows us what we all know to be true, and it’s the things that one is most tempted to enjoy as harmless entertainment that often turn out to be living animals. Splicing together Occupy mic checks with US militia rallies, FOX news hosts with ecoterrorists, and your own sanity with the home viewing habits of Negativland’s lead vocalist, the Weatherman, when you put the word True next to the word False, a broader reality reveals itself.
