I Dischi Del Barone celebrates five years of label activity with a true Crammed Disc - 12 (!) tracks on a 33rpm 7", featuring an impressive gaggle of artists old and new. Brannten Schnüre, who seem to be following the opposite trajectory of most bands in that they’re becoming MORE elusive and enigmatic as time goes on, snip the ribbon with a typically ravishing traum-fragment, and the Amateur Hour piece is the first we’ve heard from that mighty dream-punk unit since last year’s LP on Happiest Place (re-press that fucker please!). Futurians, Red Brut, Greymouth, Glasgow janglists Vital Idles and guitar/drone magus Jon Collin also weigh in. THE TEACHERS are represented by the always brilliant Pumice, Glenn Donaldson of Thuja / Jewelled Antler revisiting his anguished oneiric folk solo jag The Ivytree, plus INZANE JOHNNY Olsen as Johnny R. Spykes, and Karla Borecky of Idea Fire Company.
150 copies on black vinyl. Stamped white labels, postcard attached to the cover, insert.
