Published Aug 08, 2012When Slim Twig detailed his album Sof' Sike a few months ago, he promised that he would be teaming up with Dirty Beaches, Ela Orleans and U.S. Girls for a split release on Clan Destine Records. Well, good news: the label now has the release all ready to go.
The collection is called called Statement, and it's being billed as a split LP between the four acts. It is limited to 500 vinyl copies, and you can purchase it right now from Clan Destine's online store.
Dirty Beaches' contribution consists of a single song, the awesomely titled "Neon Gods and Funeral Strippers." Slim Twig, meanwhile, offers up three tracks. The collection is rounded out by four cuts by Ela Orleans (who has shared a split with Dirty Beaches before) and five by U.S. Girls.
You can stream one song from each artist via the SoundCloud sampler below. Dirty Beaches' track is billed as an "Edit," so it's likely that the album cut will be a chunk longer. If you like what you hear, order Statement here.
