RIYL: Alex G, Elliott Smith, Pavement, Navy Gangs, Built to Spill, Dinosaur Jr

Label: Bald Spot Records

A proper release for Cold Foamers’ fantastic 2016 Musketball EP!

This band is notoriously elusive, has a history of breaking up, coming back together, shifting members and last but not least making some of the finest DIY lo-fi indiepop Philadelphia has to offer. They produce a rich blend with various genres and inspirations involved, and if you have a soft spot for Pavement, Alex G, Elliott Smith, Built to Spill or anything remotely similar, you’re certainly in for a treat.

We did a post for their debut album “All Cold Everything” back in 2014, which was recorded and produced by Alex G (who also was a member of the band for this session), and you can find a few Black Vinyl variants of this one through here!

Accordingly previously only  available for 24 hours of streaming back in 2016, Bald Spot Records  jumped on Musketball last year and pressed 100 random colored  vinyl 7″s with screenprinted covers.  The release date states 22 May 2017, but due to the label-office being kinda hazy and the band being on/off, I only caught it yesterday from a first post on it by the band on FB..

Anyway, you should seriously CHECK IT OUT!
