Zodiacs is a Dream Project

Man, I've been crazy busy. Here's some nice new noise that came out this past week.

  • Zodiacs - "Faraway Friend" 7" (Captured Tracks)
  • "Faraway Friend" 7" - Order here
    • Not a real band per se, this is a studio project featuring friends of Captured Tracks. The track on this little piece of vinyl features Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls on vocals, with members of Woods, Blank Dogs and Crystal Stilts backing her up! You don't see something like this too often.
    • It's a very nice bit of sexy, lo-fi surf pop with back-up vocals that feel like a '50s beach horror flick.
    • Can't tell if there are any other tracks on this disc.
    • They're only making a thousand of these, and you have to buy $10 of stuff from Captured Tracks to get one. It's part of their 100th release celebration. This release is, in fact, CT-100.
    • I'm four days late on this already, so they may all be gone by now. Sorry.
The incomparable Dee Dee
But, of course, you can hear it here. Ah, the internet...
