180-gram vinyl only release. The LP includes a coupon to download high quality mp3s of the full album plus a bonus track.

A Square White Lie is a kaleidoscopic flux of sounds that pools all kinds of ideas and influences into an organic wash, one that is often transcendental and meditative, occasionally blissed out, and, once in a while, a bit fevered - like a gorgeous sunset whose hues shift and overlap in suspended time as the sun melts from the sky. It's a record that slips easily into a playlist that might include one of Teo Macero's cut-and-splice electric sessions with Miles Davis, Brian Eno's Music for Airports, Pharoah Sanders’s cosmic explorations, Aphex Twin or Colorlist's post-rock neighbors Tortoise, Isotope 217, Town and Country, or the Sea and Cake. The four instrumentals are completely improvised, recorded live over two straight days, directly onto tape for the warm, analog sound of this limited edition 180-gram vinyl release.

"On their second studio album saxophonist Charles Gorczynski andpercussionist Charles Rumback, aka Colorlist, have refined theirspellbinding meditations, sanding away the rough edges of theperformances to reveal something even more seductive. Their methodologyhasn't changed: Gorczynski still plays long, arcing passages onsaxophone and harmonium, sampling phrases to create hypnotic loops, andRumback maintains a steady pulse while constantly altering the volume,density, and tone of his playing, augmenting conventional trap-settechnique with hydroplaning cymbal drones, inventive brush work, andthe scrape and clatter of objects dragged across his kit. Hisvariegated percussion melds perfectly with the pastoral improvisationsthat Gorczynski unfolds atop the warm, enveloping backdrop of loops.Though the tone of his horn has a nice bite to it, his gorgeous,plaintive melodies nonetheless bring to mind the serene and etherealaesthetic of ECM Records. A Square White Lie was recorded andmixed by Joshua Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, and it's to his credit thathis fingerprints are nowhere to be found..." — Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
