Great release. Got the disks not long ago, felt good to fire up my old floppy drive for this!

This looks amazing. Wish I could be there.

I love this.

And as a heads up to friends in the Netherlands (and the EU in general) — CDs are now available at the excellent shop Bitropolis, located in picturesque Utrecht. (They offer EU mailorder too, which means European customers can sidestep America's obscene international postage costs.)

Thanks everyone for the support and the kind words so far!

For anyone in NYC, I wanted to mention that the CD is now in stock at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn (actually for cheaper than I'm selling it via mailorder), so please pick one up next time you hit this excellent store.
64 N 9th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249



Thanks for the kind words and the support everyone — it means a lot.

The mix on this is a face melter! Is this all hardware? The Kick and Snare on Hypervigilance especially is absolutely perfect!!

It's all hardware, but my friend Luke who did the mixing & mastering is a sorcerer when it comes to isolating / highlighting individual elements & making everything sound big in general.

Kris Keyser's long overdue return (and first full-length release) packs the same powerful danceable songs you've come to expect, along with some unexpected twists and turns. Reviver is the culmination of nearly a half-decade of meticulous tracking, battle-testing, and iteration. Recorded and mixed by Luke Silas and mastered by Jeremiah Johnson.
