Solids - Else 12" EP (Colour Vinyl, Etched Bside)
Label : Topshelf Records
Topshelf teaming up with Dine Alone Records to release this album. The EP serves as a melancholic deconstruction of the '90s slacker ethos explored on their first LP. But it also charts Solids' transition into a wider and more experimental sound, borrowing strands from Dinosaur Jr., Hum and Unwound and coiling them into an anxious, alienated sound that's all their own. The final product is a snapshot of a band that's travelled 5000 miles in 19 minutes; a band that's chained itself to the road in search of inspiration.
This is a one sided 12 inch record with a quirky, squiggly etching on the B-Side. Artwork & layout done between Alexis Coutu-Marion and guitarist/vocalist of Solids, Xavier Germain Poitras.
FFO: Hum, Dinosaur Jr, Drive Like Jehu, Yo La Tengo.
