Originally a split 3" CD-r in an edition of 50, each with a unique cover recycled from pages of a hipster illustration magazine. Made to trade and spread the word, not to sell. From a review by Joe Murray of Posset and RFM:

"Direct from Mexico The Skull Mask, Miguel Perez to his mother, plays a tinny, trebly acoustic guitar with tight steel strings wound up like a Spirograph drawing. This is how I like my guitar: gritty, tangled and free-flowing. Apart from a bit of some slight reverb this sounds like a pretty straight recording, no fancy effects or editing that makes this as refreshing as a chilled glass of Chardonnay ... The suddenly prolific Midwich drops another drone bomb on my noggin ... Throbbing tones bob up and down in the grey drone ocean until they are overturned by a doped up Narwhal. Stoned, the beast roughs up the tone and like a virus it mutates dragging fishy mammal down to drown in heavy, heavy slush. There’s a dubby quality to the latest tranche of Midwich releases which this one continues the trend, making space in the air, singling out single notes to emphasise, dragging themes back to ghost you. Expectations were indeed high. And I can report expectations were satisfied."
