THE OXFORD COMA’s Everything Out Of Tune delivers a spectrum of effects-drenched tones, teleporting the listener into an altered state of listening. Created over a two-year cycle throughout which the entire band lineup was completely restructured, Everything Out Of Tune is undeniably an album which takes the band’s unique sonics to the next level. The band recorded with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago, utilizing the famous producer’s talent and vast arsenal of equipment and instruments, including the same guitars and amps as some of their most influential bands like Nirvana and many others have recorded with. Mixed by Albini and mastered by John Golden at Golden Mastering, the album features guitar from Intronaut’s Sacha Dunable on the lead track, “Trauma (Maybe I’m Forgetting Something.”
