This digital record includes unique live arrangements of tracks from the band’s first two albums – Oshin and Is The Is Are – as well as covers of Alex G’s “Hollow” and My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep”.

“In August 2017 I was 5 months sober and DIIV hadn’t played a show in almost a year. Our friend Ric helped us set up an intimate acoustic show in a theater in our hometown of Brooklyn. We decorated the stage with stuff from our houses and played our home videos on a TV. We invited our friends and family and played some songs from our first two albums and some other artists’ songs that felt important to us as a band. It felt like some kind of reset. We recorded the show and forgot about it for a bunch of years. We recently found the recordings and thought people might want to hear them. I think of it as a kind of official bootleg I guess. Our friend Jarvis mixed it and our friends Parker and Jim made the art. Enjoy.” — Cole
