Finally in its intended form, Hands/Birds was originally released on 10" vinyl in 2001 but due to space limitations a shorter version of the title track had to be used. Now thanks to the internet, the album has been laid out as it was first envisioned with the full length title track, and the original mix of Shadow of Yourself. The whole album is also freshly mastered for maximum emotional impact.
Hands/Birds is an ambitious piece of work ranging from the electronic glaciers and glitches of Nine Part One, to the full-on electronic noise of Hard. The title track, features location recordings and fragile vocals.
