Side A of this jaw-dropper features Nat Fowler, Chris Freeland and Marc Miller of Oxes teaming up with Will Oldham (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) and Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma) for a cover of Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough” (Baerwald, Botrell, Crow, MacLeod, Riketts). Recorded by Bob Weston, the track is exclusive to this 7” and has been hidden deep in the vaults for years.
Side B of the split includes Marc Miller, Will Redman and John Dierker of Microkingdom enlisting Samuel T. Herring (Future Islands) on vocals and Liz Meredith on viola for a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” (Springsteen). Contrary to what your ears might lead you to believe, Friends Records assures you no musicians were set on fire during the recording of this slow-burning epic.

This EP is perfect in every way except its short runtime. The songs are so infectious and resonate long after they are over. Super excited to hear what this band does next - I am so glad I found them. Alec L. Critten
