We’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with our good friends at Turntable Kitchen to offer you all a very special Ltd Ed 7" pressing consisting of 4 standout tracks from our Smiths tribute. If that wasn't cool enough, the pressing is on Bronze-colored vinyl.
On Side A, Kitten tackles the iconic single “Panic.” The original was released by The Smiths in 1986 as a 7” single through Rough Trade Records and lambasts the pop music of the time (which, Morrissey lamented, “says nothing to me about my life”). It’s followed up by Built To Spill front man Doug Martsch offering a jangly and sparkling acoustic take on the opening track, “Reel Around The Fountain,” from The Smiths’ 1984 self-titled debut album.
Side B opens up with an exquisite, stripped down version of “What She Says” by La Sera mastermind Katy Goodman. With lush harmonies and a dusty vibe, it’s beautifully atmospheric and floating. Finally, Girl in a Coma offer up a version of “Rubber Ring” that’s both foot-stompingly rugged and raggedly exotic. It’s simply dripping with snarl and ominous mystery.
Turntable Kitchen pressed 525 copies on Bronze-colored vinyl, of which we have 100 copies to offer on our store. These are going to go quickly so order today to guarantee your copy.
