Previously unreleased tracks by John Vanderslice, ‘Song for Clay Miller’ and ‘Vitas at Wimbledon’, are getting the flexi-vinyl treatment via The Native Sound.
The limited edition 7-inch flexi disc is available now from The Native Sound. Order your copy here.
A couple of months back, John Vanderslice hosted a Kickstarter to release 2 new records: Dagger Beach (his 9th studio album) and a full cover of David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs. The Kickstarter project was a extremely successful. Vanderslice raised more than 75k and had more than 1200 backers!
The first track, “Song For Clay Miller”, was available exclusively to the backers of his campaign. The second song, “Vitas at Wimbledon”, was an unreleased outtake from Vanderslice’s 2009 LP Romanian Names.
Now, both of these tracks are available as a double a-side, single pressed 7″ flexi disc. (Say the five times fast)
Only 525 copies have been pressed, which of course, makes this a pretty limited pressing. Here’s the pressing information:
- Test Pressing (Version 1 – White, w/ labels) – 5
- Test Pressing (Version 2 – Clear, w/o labels) – 10
- Translucent Yellow – 100
- White – 200
- Translucent Green (Kickstarter backer exclusive) – 225, hand numbered
These flexi discs are housed in full color sleeves and poly bags, and were remastered by TW Walsh (Pedro The Lion, Sufjan Stevens, Ben Gibbard, Cold War Kids). Yeah, you read that correctly.
Half of the flexi discs sold out during the Kickstarter campaign. So if you haven’t grabbed a copy yet, hurry up and head over to The Native Sound before they’re all gone!
