Currently unavailable, the band has decided to re-sequence the music to fit more appropriately on the LP format and will be issuing it in a limited run of 1,000 copies. Each LP jacket will be hand-stamped and unique. Recorded in the early winter months of 2009, Etchings was recorded in Brendon's studio in real time with no overdubs. The tracks are an early version of the band's live set from their spring "Choral" tour. Upon it's release, Choral very quickly sold out and has since exhausted it's second pressing as well. http://www.staartje.com/ No Age No Age release their Losing Feeling EP on 5th October via Sub Pop. Here's a taster for you! No Age - You're a Target http://www.myspace.com/nonoage Thank You Thank You return after a year of touring both in the US (with Mi Ami) and abroad behind their 2008 full-length Thrill Jockey debut Terrible Two. The new EP features two new tracks, 'Pathetic Magic' and 'Strange All', and is the first recording to feature Emmanuel Nicolaidis behind the drum kit after Terrible Two drummer Elke Wardlaw followed her muse to Berlin shortly after that album was recorded. The B side of the EP features three exclusive remixes from several Baltimore friends. Dan Deacon took time out from his hectic touring schedule to remix a track, Asa Osborne of Lungfish fame lent his minimalist aesthetic to a mix of 'Pathetic Magic' and 'Strange All' woven together, and Joe Williams (of White Williams) and Jason Urick (of WZT Hearts) collaborated together on a remix of 'Pathetic Magic'. The EP was recorded by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Celebration, TV on the Radio) and Craig Bowen (Ecstatic Sunshine, Growing, Jackie-O Motherfucker). The 12" artwork was created by Shaun Flynn of WZT Hearts. Side A 1. Pathetic Magic 2. Strange All Side B 1. Dan Deacon Remix 2. Joe Williams/Jason Urick Remix 3.
