This Heart Electric – Polar b/w Nowhere To Run 7”
Nothing sounds sweeter than new vinyl from Miami. We’re thrilled to carry the debut EP from Ricardo Guerrero’s (Animals of the Arctic, hahahelp!, Death To The Sun) This Heart Electric solo project, on Ohio-based label die Stasi (also released the Electric Bunnies/Pink Reason split 7”, not to mention records by Zola Jesus and U.S. Girls). A true single with a bombastic, gloom-synth A-Side (love the howling vocals), and a more subdued, home-taper (Ariel Pink, Dino Felipe, etc) viber on the flip. An essential document from Miami, Florida at the end of the beginning of the new millenium.
After the cut: new records from No Age, David Cross and The Vaselines.
L.A. lo-fi duo (and Sweatstock 2010 headliners) No Age are dropping a new full length this September, and we’ve got two versions of their new teaser EP on Sub Pop. Both (one’s a 7”, the other a 12”) feature the single “Glitter” from their forthcoming album, Everything In Between, and alternate tracks on the B-sides not featured on the full length. The extra wax on the 12” gets you an extra song.
Speaking of Sub Pop, we’re carrying a pair of exiting new releases from the legendary Seattle label. First off there’s the ridiculously extravagant LP release of comedian David Cross’s Bigger And Blackerer album, which includes a DVD of the eponymous TV special, a poster, a free download of the album, all packaged in a velvet cover.
Also excited to see a new record from long lost Scottish twee duo, The Vaselines. Their new EP (featuring impeccably designed cover art synonymous with Sub Pop singles) is the group’s first output since 1989, and is released in anticipation of their forthcoming full length.
