Arca releases deluxe digital reissue of Xen, announces short tour

Yo, so my boy and yours, Alejandro Ghersi a.k.a. Arca, is making some major moves in the reissue sector of this gorgeous spaceship we call Earth right now. Maybe he texted you already and you know all this, but maybe not. You know about his debut full-length Xen from last year, though, right? I mean, it was number 20 on TMT’s 50 Favorite Music Releases of 2014 after all. Well cool then, we’re mostly there, because that’s what’s getting reissued. It’s arriving as the ????? Edition and it contains two additional tracks: “????? A” and “????? B.” The first one is made up of the individual tracks “Empath,” “Get Out the Fucking Car,” “Snatch,” and “Vanity,” and the second one just consists of “Dog Crying at Its Owner’s Grave.” It also comes with Jesse Kanda’s videos for the tracks “Xen” and “Thievery.” ????? indeed, am I right?

Anyway, you can grab it off iTunes right now, which is good timing because you’re probably going to need at least a month to process the whole thingy and Ghersi’s going on tour starting in April and he’s definitely going to ask you what you thought.
