"Dirty Summer," the first vinyl release from Mother Falcon, will be available Tuesday May 13th on Punctum Records. At 45 rpm, this high-fidelity record highlights every sound from the 18-piece indie orchestral behemoth. The limited edition, hand-numbered 7" vinyl is now available for pre-order at our shop.
The "Dirty Summer" record is an artifact of sorts. The A-side is the original mix of "Dirty Summer," and the version that grabbed the attention of a handful of music critics at NPR—a rather critical moment in the band's recent growth. The B-side is a re-recording of "Alligator Teeth," a song from the band's previous album, Alhambra. This version was in many ways an experiment geared toward preparing the band for You Knew, and for some time it was uncertain whether or not it would ever see the light of day. With the help of Punctum Records, Mother Falcon is thrilled to finally be able to share these songs.
