Dim Peaks – Time of Joy // Limited to 500 Milky Clear Vinyl LP

Really awesome new release from one of our favorite labels Gold Robot Records. I really love the sound that Dim Peaks has on this record. It reminds me of the Silver Jews a little, whom I love. It also would fit nicely along the latest album from Case Studies release on Sacred Bones a few months back. Well and lastly I could see it hanging out with some Bill Callahan / Smog albums. Essentially all great things. You’re gonna like it. Ohhhh and Gold Robot has given a 10% off code if you toss em a like or follow. Seems like a solid deal to me.

The Details

Format: 12" Colored Vinyl (Milky Clear)
Run: 500
Release Date: September 3, 2013

One person will be chosen at random from the first 100 pre-orders to receive an original test pressing as an added bonus.

Time of Joy evokes a place: trails worn deep by quiet guitars, whispers in the ear at dusk, beers on summer waters, the anticipation of new beginnings, light and heavy moments in an expanse of California sun and unexpected storms. There is a natural ease to the way the songs spill out and flood the room. Listeners be warned: you may see yourself within this album crying happily into your reflection.

Dim Peaks is a California-based band led by guitarist/vocalist Niilo Smeds with Russell Higbee (Man Man), Dylan Tidyman-Jones (The Mallard) and Tomas Galvan. Time of Joy was recorded in semi-sporadic sessions over the course of a year by Rob Jackson at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland CA. Overdubs and final mixes were done by Smeds at home, and the results were mastered by Paul Oldham.

About the Author

I live in Denver, Colorado and am the lead Informant of SlyVinyl. I collect vinyl because I love giving back to the artists and getting a physical piece of music history in return is a beautiful bonus. I mainly listen to wax while relaxing after working a long day at Wick Creative, where I spend much time currently. As a side note, It should be known that I will never understand why someone would pre-order mp3s from iTunes... just sayin.
