I went ahead and pre-ordered this 7″ a few weeks ago, not knowing anything about it other than:
1. Dan Bejar is involved
That’s about it.
Hello Blue Roses is Bejar and his significant other Sydney Vermont, and it sounds like Destroyer with female vocals, filtered through a smoky opium den. The Hello Blue Roses side will feature the brilliantfantastic song Foam Hands (which will also appear on the next Destroyer album, coming March 2008). The other song is a cover of Richard and Linda Thompson’s “Wall of Death.”
Frog Eyes‘s side features re-workings of two songs from this years “fucking rad” album “Tears of the Valedictorian.”
This 7″ will be limited to 500, and can be purchased from Absolutely Kosher here!
Don’t blow this one.
