Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
This ranks up there with one of the most beautiful seven inches I have ever seen, each one of those red areas is cut out of black heavy card stock, and then a red transparent insert is overlayed on top of hand drawn portraits of SIDS skulls in the middle of a skull crowd. Then the 45 itself is red vinyl. It's amazing, I showed my printer friend and he was impressed by the cut ribbon part in the middle. Let alone how one would mass produce this...the steps involved....but it is so worth it.
And it comes with a CD-R so I don't have to hook up my record player to the computer. It's ridiculous, but absolutely necessary with releases like this...so thank you Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
And by the way SIDS one of the most interesting things happening in contemporary music. I missed them the few times they have been in Brooklyn and I won't let it happen again. They are picking up the torch from the liars, and taking electronic back from the dancefloor and continuing to explore these ideas through sound, with a punk spirit. But always jawdroppingly new and you can rock out.
SIDS [website] are a synth-punk trio from atlanta. no electronics-lite here, just great driving punk rock done with keyboards, in the tradition of the screamers & early tuxedo moon but with their own sound. (7" purchase includes cdr).
[500 pressed, red vinyl]I was wayyyy too late on it mentioning this and it is completely sold out from Rob's House. But it is a thing of beauty, and...now I'm just bragging...
It's essential, search this out.
