Catalog Number: ALR-0007

- The Long So Long - John P. Strohm
- City Skies - Dylan in the Movies
A fantastic 7” vinyl split featuring classic tracks by indie-rock legend John P. Strohm (Blake Babies, Antenna, Lemonheads), and Dylan in the Movies. This is really a special release -- Strohm recorded his track in Brooklyn with a little help from the Silos, and Dylan in the Movies teamed up with Gary Smith (Pixies, Throwing Muses, Juliana Hatfield), and producer/engineer Brian Brown (Kristin Hersh, Tanya Donelly, Billy Bragg) to record his track at Fort Apache Studios. Limited edition pressing (only 500 hand-numbered copies worldwide), original sleeve art by Melinda Rainsberger, and mastering by Sean Glonek (Matthew Sweet, William Fitzsimmons, Matt Pond).
"Blake Babies and Antenna guitar guy Strohm, helped by New York vets from the Silos, is Wild Turkey-soaked in beguiling Americana on "The Long So Long," like Big Star gone alt country. Even better is the streamlined, slow power pop groove of Boston's Dylan In The Movies, i.e. Brian Sullivan with friends, more like a lighter Sloan or Mania Lucy Show than the Belle & Sebastian tune he took for a name. Ah, 7"ers, how we missed ye! Leave 'em wanting more." - Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
