Ian William Craig returns with a gorgeous new LP of material comissioned to soundtrack Magnesium_173, an elegant puzzle-based PC game inspired by quantum mechanics. The album comprises of 12 bold and immersive pieces, totalling 80 mins of new music, with Ian using modular synthesis for the first time. Anything but passive/reserved background sound-beds, it possesses a real weight and power, displaying his peerlessness as an improvising composer able to summon and shape the sublime via modified tape decks, electronics and his beautiful voice, and forge a unique kind of choral-based, heavily-abrasive take on ambient composition. Craig is described by MOJO as "a trained opera singer manipulating analogue recordings of his own voice to conjure up bewitching traceries of phantom arias... creating something elegiac and profound" and by The Guardian as "like a collaboration between between Bon Iver and William Basinski", and by Pitchfork as "like Tim Hecker producing the outré Jónsi Birgisson album many expected but never got."

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50˘ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
