ORDER 7″ HERE // DIGITAL HERE
Friends Records is honored to offer the first physical grooves from Jenn Wasner’s (Wye Oak) solo project, Flock of Dimes. The inaugural press is limited to 500 copies on bright orange vinyl, and will first be made available at Flock of Dimes’ tour kickoff opening for Sharon Van Etten April 19, 2012 in Baltimore, Maryland. Packaging includes a download card, and features design by Rose MF Chase with photos by Jana Hunter.
“Prison Bride” is the genre-defying dark banger that Wasner unveiled the project with in 2011, appearing prior only on cassette via the Friends Records 2011 compilation. For the new release the single has been mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering, and will appear on side A of the seven inch.
Side B will house “I Can’t Tell You Why (screwed mix)”, a hauntingly beautiful take on the Eagles’ 1979 hit, also mastered by Paul Gold (Written by Frey/Henley/Schmit). While side B’s screwed mix was recorded at the Soft House in Baltimore, side A’s “Prison Bride” features production help from Mickey Freeland.
FR019 is now up for pre-order from Friends, and will be available for Flock of Dimes’ tour with Sharon Van Etten that starts on April 19th. Tour dates are below.
