DIIV - Live at the Murmrrr Theatre (RSD2023)
In 2017, DIIV took the stage at Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre for a special, on-off, “unplugged” performance. Now, the band shares a compilation of those live recordings. Includes unique arrangements of tracks from the band’s first two albums - Oshin and Is The Is Are - as well as covers of Alex G’s “Hollow” and My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep”.
Following the digital release in November 2022, the compilation is now available on vinyl for the first and only time, pressed on Eco vinyl - exclusive to Record Store Day 2023.
“In August 2017 I was 5 months sober and DIIV hadn’t played a show in almost a year. Our friend Ric helped us set up an intimate acoustic show in a theater in our hometown of brooklyn. We decorated the stage with stuff from our houses and played our home videos on a tv. We invited our friends and family and played some songs from our first two albums and some other artists’ songs that felt important to us as a band. It felt like some kind of reset. We recorded the show and forgot about it for a bunch of years. We recently found the recordings and thought people might want to hear them. I think of it as a kind of official bootleg I guess. Our friend Jarvis mixed it and our friends Parker and Jim made the art. enjoy.” — Zachary Cole Smith
