To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of their seminal album ‘Cold House’, Domino is proud to rerelease Hood’s definitive work as a special limited edition double vinyl set, available for sale on Monday the 20th of February 2012.

‘Cold House’ is repressed for the first time in a ltd edition of 500 for the world as a double gatefold lp cut at 45 rpm for maximum audiophile pleasure and also comes with exclusive liner notes to the vinyl edition and download codes.  Pre-order ‘Cold House’ HERE.

Domino is also releasing, ‘Recollected’ a 6 CD collection of the finest works of Hood.  ‘Recollected’ features their four Domino released studio albums ‘Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys’, ‘The Cycle Of Days And Seasons’, ‘Cold House’ and ‘Outside Closer’ plus a compilation of the band’s Domino EPs as well as The Hood Tapes, a 24 song bonus CD of rare, previously unreleased recordings.  ‘Recollected’ is available via Dom Mart from Monday the 5th of December 2011, see details HERE, and through other retail outlets on Monday the 20th of  February 2012.

Hood formed in Leeds in December 1990 around the nucleus of brothers Richard and Christopher Adams.  The band released 9 albums and 17 singles and are now on long term hiatus, whilst band members work on their own musical projects.  Across a quartet of albums for Domino the Yorkshire-based experimentalists traced an arc from sprawling post-rock to processed piano pieces to icy electronica referencing the likes of Talk Talk and Disco Inferno along the way, producing some of the most beguiling and special music of the late nineties and early noughties.

The six CDs have been completely remastered from the original sources, and are lovingly packaged in a deluxe rigid board mounted box set, featuring each album in its own spined mini album sleeve, with new, fully comprehensive 32 page sleeve notes.  The box set will retail at approx £50.

‘A band making the kind of Serious Innovative Music people like to imagine Radiohead are, only without a hint that they know or care that they're doing it at all.’ -  Pitchfork
