Two tracks, 26 minutes. Follow-up to the critically acclaimed Nests of Waves and Wire. Only 500 copies made, most sold on tour by Tartufi, last few copies left. 180gm vinyl, beautifully packaged and includes a download card for the EP.
Following the release of their epic masterpiece Nests of Waves and Wire, Tartufi booked themselves up on an almighty tour of the USA and packed up ready to hit the road for an entire month. But, not before heading over to Louder studios, where Tom Green (The Fucking Champs, Nation of Ulysses) recorded their newest offering The Goodwill of the Scar. True to Tartufi form, The Goodwill of the Scar blew us here at Southern away and it is with real pride that we present this record.
This San Francisco duo have received critical acclaim for their awe-inspiring live sets and loop-heavy soundscapes, have once again pushed their sonic vision to a whole new level. Comprised of one epic, 26 minute song "The Butterless Man", The Goodwill of the Scar was recorded especially for their US tour. Only 500 copies were pressed and Southern is now in possession of the last few there are, and will ever be.
