THE FINEST TREE I EVER DID SEE:
Treedom. It all began in the Triassic. Fast forward to this past summer. I was awakened by the sound of chainsaws, and by the end of the day all the trees that had been lining my building since at least the first half of the last century had been shredded and transported away. This premium comes out of a desire to commemorate the disappeared with an act of dendrolatry. The 7" single features exclusive tree-butes by Richard Youngs & Heatsick. The vinyl comes with free downloads which include a bonus Richard Youngs remix PLUS odes to trees recorded especially for this premium by an international cast of self-confessed arborists: Tsambla, H., Janek Schaefer, Stephen Vitiello, Asian Women On The Telephone, Ilitch, Ensemble Economique (Brian Pyle of Starving Weirdos), Knuckleduster (feat. Robert Lippok of To Rococo Rot), Our Love Will Destroy the World (ex-Birchville Cat Motel), Mela Zeta, Nick Storring, and Tom Carter (Charalambides)!
