Olivia Tremor Control Announce Reissues

In November, respected indie company Chunklet will reissue two out-of-print albums from Elephant 6 O.G.s, Olivia Tremor Control, completing the comeback for pretty much every old Elephant 6 band. The reissues of 1996's Music From the Unrealized Film Script: Dusk at Cubist Castle and 1999's Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol 1., two double albums, are due out on Nov. 15 and will be limited to 1000 copies, along with 200 copies available through mail order. They will come packed with a bunch of extras, including outtakes, B-sides, and a bevy of other extras. If you haven't gotten familiar with OTC, one of the weirder bands in Elephant 6, here's your chance:
