In an amazing turn of events Woob has assimilated Max & Harvey and released the album ‘Have Landed’ aka Woob³ onto the world but don’t worry we cloned them first so you will still be able to buy the album at the Emporium if you prefer.
Have Landed encompasses some of the best recordings previously released under the Max & Harvey moniker along with a plethora of new material including a few surprises. With musical styles from the time periods of 1899, 1969, 1999 and 2099 in an H.G. Wells inspired time travel extravaganza. It’s the future that never happened – happening right now!
There is a whole host of different editions to check out at the Stores – here’s a summary:
Get lost in the late 19th century in a world created from the future in Technicolor. Create your own adventure with the ‘Custom Cover CD’ & deluxe sticker sheet or travel to a previous classified time and destination and battle giant sea creatures.
Alternatively peruse the Black & White 60’s elegant cinematic design aesthetics of the Monochrome Edition with hand crafted stencilled sleeve, poster and more (only 50 available.)
A release in its own right Have Landed: ‘Complete Cinematic Works’ is delivered on a carved wooden artifact and contains not only the 24-bit masters but everything else related, including previously unreleased material and a special Vinyl captured collection: A one-off clear vinyl has been created especially for this collection. (Full contents listed on store page)
Finally for those who want it all and more the Ultimate Edition may hit 3 figures in its $ price tag but it comes with a replica of a real life rocket ship! but that’s just a bit of fun the main focus in this edition is the amount of merchandise you receive so much in fact it ships in two packages! Includes, unique hand drawn items, the Artifact, Monocrome CD Set + Signed and Sealed Edition Technicolor Edition and more. Only 4 Available (One Per Person)
The Artifact is limited to 25, split between both stores and the Ultimate Edition. If it proves popular I may consider another 25 if enough people email me however this will come signed but not numbered.
All Products are pre-order but come with instant digital download + all pre-orders come with a bonus gift and bonus digital track. Shipping begins at some point in December but obviously if there is any delay I will ship in the new year if it gets too close to Xmas to post.

As a prelude to the forthcoming début LP a FREE Max & Harvey EP is now available featuring the classic Big Amoeba Sound, the amoeba length ‘Interval‘ – (which will sound familiar to those who may have visited the M&H website in the past) and a stripped back beatless arrangement of ‘Thieves’ – The Score.

The off-world, ‘If I Don’t Make it Home’ not only marks the return of Max & Harvey but also the angelic voice of Siobhan Lynch who previously appeared (in reverse) on the last release Thieves. The track is part of the Ninja Tune XX anniversary celebrations (via:XX Vol.2) and is exclusive to iTunes…

The long-awaited Max and Harvey début album, (aka Woob³) is still one track away from completion but don’t despair as there are a number of things coming to tide you over until its eventual arrival.
It seems you can’t actually get the Max & Harvey – Sleep single outside of Europe on download (iTunes). So for the first time ever…you can – through Max & Harvey’s all new Music Emporium.
Better still, not only are the tracks available in lossless format but you also get the Sleep Film in Quicktime format, hi-res jpeg’s of the original 10″ Vinyl Artwork + the film soundtrack as a separate audio download.

and look out for a Free Max & Harvey EP and other stuff coming soon.
This is a short film for the Max & Harvey track Thieves. The concept behind the music was one of diamond theft in a cat burglary fashion hence the title. its seems however Iloobia did not receive this memo and independently conceived and directed a film with Thieves as its soundtrack. The result is a beautifully crafted, visually arresting piece with a somewhat macabre slant. Iloobia, a long time friend and collaborator has featured on Season 9 before with his experimenting Clawboy. I spoke to him recently and asked him to explain the thinking and process behind the film, we also talk film-making and the future of Clawboy is revealed!
S9: You describe the Thieves film as ‘a re-imagining of the Frankenstein story’ could you elaborate on this.
Iloobia: ‘Thieves’ is constructed from fragments of material slowly collected over a year from England, Holland and Hungary. There were no parameters imposed on what that material should be, primarily as I was working in quite a demanding commercial TV realm at the time where the parameters and briefs were extremely strict. So Thieves was to be the antithesis of that way of working.Weirdly, the edit of Thieves began after a fairly major burnout in that part of my commercial career leaving me pretty much abandoning the medium of film and video altogether. But as a process of self imposed therapy I began to assemble this random material to see if there was any form or sense to be forged out of it instead of throwing the edit suite out of the window. This began to evoke some kind of Dr. Frankenstein process, especially as I began to see themes of death and rebirth suggested within the material, which was strangely coincidental as I was trying to restore my interest in the medium again after it being killed off.
So these themes infused into the film, which I came to see as a kind of Dr. Frankenstein story without the Frankenstein character ever on screen.
S9: Explain the technical creation process behind the film.
