FADER/Southern Comfort 7” Series #5: Rubik’s Cube

January 07, 2008


We’ve been staring at Matt Furie’s cover art for hours trying to pick our favorite crazy looking monster thing. Right now we are stuck on the melted marshmallow ghost but ask us again in a minute and it might be the Rubix Cube robot in the bottom left. We don’t have to wonder about which song on this FADER/Southern Comfort 7" we like the most, because both are ill. Side A is a Dirty Projectors edit of their own cover of Black Flag’s “Police Story,” going down compelling and uneasy, while Side B holds “Blue Steel,” a warm and relatively low key White Williams piano jam full of hidden layers and an 8-bit undercurrent that will keep us listening breathlessly until the next record.

We have a handful of copies to give away, so email your mailing address to contests@thefader.com with the subject heading "Seven."
