Comprised of Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Editors’ Justin Lockey & his brother James, Minor Victories present their collaborative debut.

What began as Justin’s desire to create an extreme noise EP topped off with delicate female vocals, 'Minor Victories' became a cinematic 10 track LP. masterfully crafted through brief meetings, mutual acquaintances & overall serendipity, MINOR VICTORIES created this album together by swapping ideas, songs, fragments & finished recordings via broadband connections - the 4 band members have somehow never all been in the same room together. This unusual process, combined with the members’ wide spectrum of musical tastes converging, ultimately led to something beyond the original vision of any of the contributors. at times haunting & synth driven, at others joyous & uplifting or melancholy & contemplative, it rides the gamuts of emotion.
