Platter Base Must Be Constructed of Moon Rock, by Thee Speaking Canaries January 18, 2015
Now in at Sound Cat: Thee Speaking Canaries, "Platter Base Must Be Constructed of Moon-Rock" LP+7". Thee Speaking Canaries (featuring Damon Che, also of Don Caballero) are among my all-time favorite bands (and I can say that even if I was in the band for a while many years ago), so I'm very excited to have this newly released (by Chunklet) archival record of the earliest Canaries recordings in stock now at Sound Cat. Personally delivered by Mr. Che himself, we also have the bonus 7"s that are available with the mail order version, so don't miss out!
