DrownedinSound came perilously close to parting with £41.33 – a whole three days wages – five minutes ago and for what? Six pieces of 7” vinyl. Good vinyl, though, with songs on them by popular entertainers No Age, Abe Vigoda (pictured) and Sunset Rubdown among others.
Perhaps you’d like to subscribe to the offer what I couldn’t afford – click to add David Horvitz’ 7” picture disc series, which also features contributions from Mika Miko Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and Parenthetical Girls, to your cart at Aagoo Records.
As their name suggests, each one of the bi-monthly releases will feature a photograph of the band taken by Xiu Xiu-associate Horvitz, reports Pitchfork.com. Limited to 500 copies, a number of those will be reserved for subscribers, while the rest will find their way through various trade routes to dim, dank record shops and venue merch tables. Rejoice, release schedule below.
