Polyvinyl Record Co have announced the reissue of five classic Rainer Maria albums on vinyl this coming November 16th. In 1997, Rainer Maria officially became the first active band on the Polyvinyl roster with the release of their debut full-length, Past Worn Searching. Over the course of the next six years, the trio released three more albums — Look Now Look Again (1999), A Better Version of Me (2001), and Long Knives Drawn (2003) — all of which further solidified the band as a pioneering act in the Midwestern DIY scene and beyond, anchored by poetic lyrics, Caithlin De Marrais’ powerful vocals, Kaia Fischer’s guitar and William Kuehn’s drumming.
After falling out of print on vinyl over the years, we are extremely excited to properly re-introduce these five classic records (including 2006’s Catastrophe Keeps Us Together making its first appearance on LP) featuring artwork remastered by designer Mark Owens (Life of the Mind) and lacquers cut by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service.
