Jäh Division "Dub Will Tear Us Apart… Again (EJRC)"
If you listened to music in 2004, then chances are you listened to Jäh Division’s Dub Will Tear Us Apart. The project, made up of members of Animal Collective, Oneida, and other then-burgeoning Brooklyn scene players, was a simple, funny to read about concept. Jäh Division plays dub versions of Joy Division songs (nearly 10 years before The Pizza Underground did their concept thing, thank you very much). Well here it is nearly 15 years later (shudder) and Ernest Jenning Record Co. is reissuing that original EP, but expanded to include a few more left off of the original EP and some songs from a scrapped album. Unlike a lot of other gimmick bands like this, they were actually great players, and more than the sum of their name and their blog-friendly story. In fact, you needn’t know anything about the story to love this dubbed up release. Check out “Dub Will Tear Us Apart.”
