The 24th installment in the limited-run Daytrotter Presents vinyl series, this 180-gram, split 12-inch vinyl features a very special pairing of Rhode Island's Brown Bird and fellow Rhode Islander Joe Fletcher. The paths that Brown Bird's Dave Lamb walks along are heavy paths with all kinds of things grabbing at his ankles. They sprout dark howls and they're chilling, but forgiving and intriguing. Most of the time, it sounds as if those things trying to get holds are the hands of ghosts reaching up from the graves, poking out of the dirt and feeling for something warm. There's no telling what any of them will do with the leg, with him if they get a grip that can't be shaken from, but it seems like Lamb might know how to handle himself in such a situation. Joe Fletcher's songs - are stories of all the many things that can go wrong, that occasionally go right. They are stories about all of the things that mark us up, that make us tired and alive. We hear the stinging stale lights in these songs, the stagnant tone, along with a ferocity of spirit that's wanting to whip all of these things, once and for all. But, it all comes down to the very troubling sense that nothing's ever going to be enough to take care of it.

This split is available for FREE to anyone purchasing a new annual Daytrotter membership, renewing or extending their current membership (shipping not included), as well as being available directly here in the store. Get these while you can. Quantities will be limited. Thanks for the support and enjoy!
