Daily Doses: Weed “Release Party” From The Down In The Valley E.P. (2010)
Let the party begin!
As of about 12:00 tonight, Weed (The brilliant blown-out rock vision of Will Anderson) announced a few changes to their previously one man line up, as well as a new release! To get updated on exactly what those changes are you can just click right here, and get the message from the source.
But to give you a quick breakdown:
A: Weed is new a full band, and will be playing their first show on December 10th, in Vancouver, BC.
B: They have some sweet new swag.
C: They have a new E.P. that will crush you.
I first was introduced to Weed through my good friend Dave over at Stadiums and Shrines, who picked their track “Quilt” for his favorite recent track on the first We Get By compilation. Subsequently, Dave also tapped him as one of his favorite artists of the year for our Collaborations release, for which Weed partnered with Foxes In Fiction for an amazing cover of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”
Since that first exposure, I had time to fall in love with Weed’s first two E.P’s (To The North, and D.C. Hope), and they have become two of my favorite releases this year, and a constant in my cassette player.
This new E.P. looks to be no exception.
With mastering from Lance Smith (of Pandit), the Appropriately named “Release Party” is our first glimpse of Down In The Valley, and it delivers all of the punch of anything on the previous two E.P.’s, but with some subtle nudges to allow a little more breathing room.
The new record, which will be available to order from Orchid Tapes on November 26th. You can also visit Weed’s Bandcamp For Lyrics And Further Information.
