Oval reissues for Record Store Day 2013

Two Oval albums from the mid-90s are being reissued for Record Store Day 2013. Systemisch and 94diskont, both released on Mille Plateaux then Thrill Jockey, are being pressed to vinyl in editions of 1500.

Systemisch and 94diskont both feature the original Oval line up of Markus Popp, Sebastian Oschatz and Frank Metzger, before the latter two left in 1995. Systemisch is pressed as a double clear vinyl, and 94diskontis pressed to orange vinyl, and includes the album plus the original extra 12" of "Do While" remixes by Jim O'Rourke, Scanner, Mouse On Mars and Christian Vogel. Both also come with downloads.
