"The Portland Cement Factory at Monolith, California"
b/w "Hagstrom"

"Cul de Sac's revenge on John Fahey. . . ." --NME

"On the a-side of this lovely single, Cul de Sac revisits its affinity for John Fahey's Americana with a live recording made near the titular edifice. Acid-bath synthesizer interjections remind us that factories are, after all, industrial environments. (The sleeve houses a nifty booklet that sets out the history of said factory.) The flip, "Hagstrom," posits an alternate universe where opiated rembetika pluckers sit in with Miles Davis' Agharta-era band on a lazy Chinese surf ballad." --Bill Meyer, Magnet
