SANDCATS / CAR CLUTCH
WFWF008 – FRIENDSHIP/TRIP01
RELEASED: JUNE 2008
We are very proud to announce the first in our FRIENDSHIP / TRIP 7” series: a split between deep bass world champions CAR CLUTCH (mem. BARR [BRENDAN FOWLER] and ETHAN SWAN) and the elusive and beautifully dangerous SANDCATS (mem. CEX [RJYAN KIDWELL), MILEMARKER, LEXIE MOUNTAIN BOYS [ROBY NEWTON]).
Tracks are: “BIKEWRIDER” (SC) and “RINGU, I’M ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT” (CC), and they are each such triumphs – at once foreboding and enlivening, boasting the most sonorous bass, enhanced times billions by Shawn Hatfield’s expert mastering.
FRIENDSHIP / TRIP is a special project for WILDFIRE WILDFIRE – curated with a few prescriptions for artists featured on each split to follow: choose a full-flood photograph to be printed on heavy reverse board and one song to be pressed on the heaviest quality vinyl; we choose a pantone to print on the inside of the jacket and label, and emboss each band’s name on their respective side.
70 g vinyl, 350gsm reverse board, 500 copies pressed and delicate, by-hand embossing by Nick Gottlund of Gottlund Verlag.
