Ela Orleans / Dirty Beaches - Double Feature Split 12" LP


Beautiful art work by Shawn Reed

Split 12"LP with my friend Ela Orleans out now!!!

Background info on my side of the split:

These songs were recorded the same time as badlands, and in a way are the b-sides of the album. sonically they didn't flow or fit in with the original concept and were unfortunately axed from the final cut. I was very pleased to have found a home for them when Night People and La Station Radar approached me and Ela last year about this split. the songs were then edited and submitted shortly after badlands were submitted for mastering with zoo music. Woven like a alternative narrative story ark in the saga of badlands, its very much a short film in essence. Perhaps what I love the most about this batch of songs is its feminine quality and the female characters that come into play in the foreground of this story.

*Note:
If you live in North America, order from NIGHT PEOPLE as the shipping will be cheaper to save some unnecessary spending and if you live in Europe/other territories I would suggest ordering from LA STATION RADAR / ATELIRR CISEAUX
