1. Alive In The Tone. Special 4th official printing (CDr with alternative artwork, hand stamped and numbered) for Pretend's Mexico tour in August, 2017. Track listing matches that of original self-released version.
One of the most gorgeous collections of sprawling, atypical songs ever put together. Pretend create a beautiful atmosphere with some very smart percussion, crooning vocals a la Dilute and jagged guitar work. One of the most overlooked records of 2009, and one of the best Math, Post Rock albums full stop. Complexity alone isn't going to make a band special, though, but Pretend knows that just as well as any other. Bones In The Soil, Rust In The Oil is a beautiful, diverse, and charming post-rock/math rock album. There are absolutely gorgeous guitars here, but the band place an emphasis on vocals and drumming that most post-rock bands simply don't do. The "twinkly" sound of the guitars isn't static either, as the band lends themselves to some heavier moments on tracks like "Holy Destination".
