Published Oct 23, 2008After winning over more than a few electro-savvy listeners with last years Beatbox and the near-classic After Dark comp, Glass Candy have lined up a pile of new goods for the now-disco-loving masses.
First up, the duos Ida No and Johnny Jewel have dropped word of a new rarities collection, titled Deep Gems. The 12-track disc comes boasting a pile of unreleased gems ten to be exact recorded between March 2006 and October 2008, as well as a new remix of "Miss Broadway and the 12-inch version of their much-loved "Geto Boys. Also, if youve been waiting to score Beatbox on wax, Glass Candy have finally pressed it up on vinyl and packaged it with a new seven-inch called Back to Back Midnight Classics, which boasts two new exclusive tracks: "High B and "The Gate.
