Originally released in 1996 on Trance Syndicate, this is a timeless record that sounds like a dream collaboration of Martin Hannett and Brian Eno. Snaps of electronic drums collide with warm hum and reverb-drenched guitars. Recorded by Adam Wiltzie of Stars Of The Lid. Also contains the flexi that came with the first 750 vinyl copies, along with two previously unreleased live tracks.

"the first time michael gira (singer/songwriter of SWANS)heard windsor for the derby, he was taken aback, not only by the shimmering, passionate quality of the music, but by the dark intensity these guys reach, all while using clean guitars. that alone should irk your interest...a man who has stood less than three feet from the most monstrous noise in the history of new york for hours at a time, day after day, a man who has spent about 15 years of his life slowly damaging himself, becoming numb to things that would sicken most people. (if you dont know what im talking about, read theConsumer)But for a band to have really made an impression on gira, they really mustve been something. wftd play slow, melncholy post rock, all the instruments falling in unison the the downbeat of a drummer who sounds very tired. i wish i could describe this better, but i really cant. this is incredible, distant, softly strummed guitars rise to a subtle climax, then gently fall asleep and crack their heads on the pavement. highly recommended for fans of later era swans, angels of light, tribes of neurot, godspeedyoublackemperor!, tarentel, and other bands on the temporary residence and kranky labels."
Now one of my all time favorite albums...

"Windsor for the Derby didn't amaze me too, too much when I heard the most recent disc, 'Emotional Rescue LP,' but when I found out that their older records were recorded and produced and performed with Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid) I had to look into it some more. 'Calm Hades Float,' is one of the best post rock / indie rock / experimental discs out there. I love it. I think it would fit best with fans of Bedhead, Stars of the Lid, Labradford, Swans, Angels of Light .... this stuff is incredible. Get out there and grab this wonderful album."
