Lucky 13th of July, here’s a surprise release of a compilation of live recordings from last summer’s Red Teeth/ Some Plurals tour. This tour was in support of Red Teeth’s fantastic Light Bender 7-inch, with live renditions of all of the songs from that release appearing here in addition to other Red Teeth songs and a rendition of “Hey Sandy” by Polaris. Hattie and Tommy from The Plurals also performed on this tour as a duo and in collaboration with Ryan and Rael from Red Teeth, leading to some rare 4-piece renditions of Plurals songs. Two songs from the forthcoming Plurals album Swish appear here in different form along with older Plurals songs and a cover of “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?” by The Shirelles. Make sure to keep your ears peeled for some Tim Hoh spoken word cameos on some of the tracks too. Pay-what-you-want download available now, cassettes in collaboration with Tape Swap Radio, featuring live sessions each band did with them, will ship next month. Tune in to WLVU: The Sound of The Underground at 8 PM tonight to hear a special broadcast of the Plurals session we did with them on this tour! So many activities!
