GRANDADDY - RIP COYOTE CONDO #5 B/W THE FOX IN THE SNOW & IN MY ROOM VINYL (LTD. ED. 12")
LIMITED EDITION 12" VINYL
Release Date: 11th December 2020
"Formed in 1992, the Californian indie-rock band have released a number of albums – from their 1997 debut Under the Western Freeway to The Sophtware Slump three years later, to 2003’s Sumday. While NPR called their signature sound ‘neo-psychedelic space-pop’, NME christened it “atmospheric electronics meet warped Americana”. After breaking up in January 2006, they reunited six years later for some celebratory shows and eventually released a new record in 2017. Tragically, this was also the year that marked the death of bassist Kevin Garcia. Released in December 2019, melancholy track "RIP Coyote Condo #5" was the first since Garcia’s passing and clocks in at nearly eight minutes long. To mark the 20th anniversary of their legendary album ‘The Sophtware Slump’, Grandaddy release a fully re-mastered version. This reissue package includes two of the band’s EPs, ‘Signal To Snow Ratio’ and ‘Through A Frosty Plate Glass’, never before released on vinyl. Rounding out the reissue is a piano rendition of the 2000 album, entitled ‘The Sophtware Slump… on a wooden piano’. This Record Store Day release features a rare Grandaddy track, "RIP Coyote Condo #5", not previously available on vinyl – as well as Jason Lytle’s solo piano performances of "The Fox In The Snow" (Belle and Sebastian) and "In My Room" (Beach Boys)."
