Friday Singles meltdown

Having been hard at work on reviews lately, I often fail to get a chance to post about 7"'s that just came out, or are available for preorder.
This Shannon and the Clams holiday single was announced yesterday from 1,2,3,4 Go Records. It's already Christmas this year and they were smart and must have gotten started on this a while ago..and they look so jazzed about the holiday! Oh joy! It looks like one of those Kmart portraits...they set up a tree and everything.



From 1,2,3,4 Go Records:
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER! SHIPS NOVEMBER 30TH 2010.
BLACK VINYL LUMP OF COAL edition. Limited to 100 copies!

The Clams ruin yet another family gathering! This one on christmas of all days!!! Bless em they're trying to make up for it with four christmas classics! Only available for the holiday season! 600 copies total are being made this year!

1. Melekalikimaka
2. All I Want For Christmas Is You
3. Blue Christmas
4. Fat Daddy
Now wait a second...the color vinyl on the site is 4.99, but the lump of coal, black edition is 5.99? It's bizzarro xmas prices.



Bringing more holiday spirit is Blessure Grave is at it with a split with Bestial Mouths. They tease with an acoustic and then bring it heavy with toms and their weird timing. Bestial Mouths sound like a good combo, minimal, heavy echo vocals and that feeling of dread.

Blessure Grave / Bestial Mouths Untitled 7” Split + mp3 code

Blessure Grave follow up their full length debut showcasing yet another hit single, while Los Angeles’s Bestial Mouths make their debut proper blasting through two epics loaded with torrential vocals and synthesizer led melodies. These bands do not upset, this is an excellent split single.

From Family Time Records



Then Stones Throw had to go and release this massive set that reminds me to go I have to go watch that 45 battle with DJ shadow on netflix again.

Ten 7-inch singles. Hip-hop music from the Stones Throw archive never before on 45, selected by Peanut Butter Wolf.

Debuted at our 10/10/10 event in Los Angeles, this is a box set of ten 7-inch singles - hip hop music from the Stones Throw archive never before on 45, selected by Peanut Butter Wolf. This will be released October 25, 2010, and is available now exclusively on Stones Throw's web store.


Finally this Blackbird Blackbird single on Firetalk Records. Warbly electronic haze with buried vocals. Playing all over overwhelming CMJ which is coming up this weekend...along with the WFMU record fair. Yikes.

As prolific as he wants to be San Francisco's Blackbird Blackbird drops an undeniable gem with the help of Emily Reo. Get lost in the shimmery production and ride a dream boat down a river of bliss. Dig!

LIMITED TO 500 COPIES

A - Fade To White (Feat. Emily Reo)

B- Letting Go

THIS IS A PRE ORDER
THIS 7 INCH WILL SHIP ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 23rd 2010

  1. I ordered my Clams and Sandwitches 7"s yestersay. I was wondering about the $5.99 black coal edition too. Maybe it's shaped like coal or something.

  2. I think it's just black...it's funny though...and there's only 100.
