When Austin-based animator Dax Norman made a rad music video for an unfinished TST demo, we rushed to put it out as a digital single. Comes with two short films by Dax (the surreal CG animated music video for the A-side, and “Argyle Kabuki”), TST’s first EP, One Lit Window, as bonus tracks, and an external download link for PSTST ( ZIP), a 5-track roundup of all officially released, TST-produced remixes and compilation tracks. After all the additions, we could’ve called this so-called ‘single’ “The Starry Tides: Complete Works”. RER was hard at work on Sneaky Flute Moods: A Tribute to the Swirlies at the time, so this came out on “Tex-O-X”, a fictitious sub-imprint.
