LIMITED TO 500 UNITS - TRANSLUCENT ORANGE VINYL!
What began two years ago as informal jam sessions for Ariel Pink, Neil Schuh, and Crooked Cowboy evolved into a collaborative recording project with one rule to each session: no one was allowed to say no to an idea. Using whatever they could get their hands on to record inspirations, they finally went into the studio, and within three sessions the beginnings of “Cloak & Dagger” emerged. The Los Angeles trio’s satisfaction with the single led them to ask friend, Aaron Frankel, to remix the track for the B-side.
2012 included the success of Pink’s album, Mature Themes, as well as Schuh and Crooked Cowboy releasing multiple records together as Crooked Cowboy and The Freshwater Indians. The year brought on difficulties for the group, too, when Crooked Cowboy suffered a massive heart attack, significantly delaying the trio’s release date.
At last, “Cloak & Dagger” drops 12/18/12 on LA’s vinyl-only record store and label, Origami Vinyl. The 7” is limited to a one-time pressing of 500 copies on transparent orange vinyl.
