San Francisco trio VANISHING return with the follow-up to 2003's Songs for Psychotic Children. Still Lifes Are Failing finds the group getting beyond the traditional retro-inspired sound of their debut, exploring darker and far more explosive territory. Often compared to groups such as SISTERS OF MERCY and THE BIRTHDAY PARTY (but with a decidely more dance/electronic feel), VANISHING have developed a unique and recognizable sound within the confines of contemporary "post-punk" and alt-dance music. Unlike most of their contemporaries, however, they inject an unmistakeable degree of sexual politics and actual thought into what they are doing - and saying. Enhanced CD includes 2 videos. Vinyl limited to 1000.
