Published Jan 19, 2011While it's unclear whether or not the gents in experimental indie rockers Women are back on speaking terms following that messy onstage fight a couple of months back, fans of the Calgary act can rest easy knowing that the on-hiatus outfit have at least one more release left in them. A recently released seven-inch single hosts a new track by the group, as well as tunes from three more acts.
The new seven-inch split features the unreleased Women track "Bullfight," the first song to be released by the band following last fall's acclaimed
Drummer Michael Wallace's side-project Friendo is also featured on the vinyl release, contributing the Sonic Youth-indebted "Pass Times." The song follows up last year's Cold Toads LP.
The seven-inch offers more than just Cancon indie rock, though, and highlights a couple of overseas acts as well. UK-based tropical rockers Fair Ohs trickle out the sun-soaked "Jeanneret," while peppy psych punks Cold Pumas drop a hazy tune of their own. Check out the full tracklisting below.
Faux Disc is offering the collection as both a limited edition vinyl release and a digital package. Vinyl is limited to 500 copies.
Women / Cold Pumas / Fair Ohs / Friendo seven-inch:
1. Women "Bullfight"
