Aotearoa lo-fi pioneers Tall Dwarfs, the duo of Chris Knox and Alec Bathgate (both also of Toy Love), have made available their entire discography on streaming services and Bandcamp today, released along with the announcement of a forthcoming Unravelled: 1981–2002 retrospective box set, out on 19th August via Merge Records. Launching into the physical realm as a jumbo quadruple vinyl LP collection including a sure to be eye-popping 20-page booklet "of lyrics, photos, comics, posters, and other ephemera" created by the monumentally influential pair, as well as a double CD edition, Unravelled: 1981–2002 bundles together a whopping 55 tunes by Tall Dwarfs, spanning seven EPs and six albums — from their Furtive debut Three Songs right up to their Flying Nun Records 2002 album The Sky Above the Mud Below.
