"Composed for a dance of the same name, choreographed by Daisy Karen Thompson. Gabriel Saloman (Yellow Swans, Mudsuckers) begins Riots Don't Just Happen with a shuddering drum roll before settling into a series of brooding, rumbling guitar drones. The ensuing pull and push is suggestive of a restless mass, rearranging itself and reforming. Military drums disrupt the standoff and with this call to arms tension swiftly mounts as the atmosphere becomes denser and increasingly claustrophobic. There is a narrative element to Riots which evokes an unrest building on the back of long simmering strain and provocation. Single sided record, pressed on cherry-red, with screen-printed b-side by master screen-printer, Ulrich Schmidt-Novak. All the artwork was handmade by artists Paul McDevitt & Cornelius Quabeck using a Risograph printer in combination with spray paint. Numbered edition of 300 copies, with a photograph, insert, and download code. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering." (label info)
