The Grammys are going on right now, but I couldn’t care less about them. Sunday is a rather odd day to unleash something new unto the world (the only other band I can think of that did that was My Bloody Valentine last year), but it indeed does happen. Luckily my favorite and criminally underrated couple in music, Windy Weber & Carl Hultgren, released the third and last installment of their 20th anniversary series and have saved me from the onslaught of Grammys Facebook statuses, tweets, and what-have-you in the maw of social media I’m drowning myself in. The A-side “I Walked Alone” is perhaps the most hypnagogic Windy & Carl song I’ve heard yet. The B-side “At Night” (which completes the phrase) is a continuation of the A-side and it, too, is also quite hypnagogic. These two can do no wrong in my eyes. It’s almost a year ago now that I’ve begun writing for Sly Vinyl and the first thing I wrote about here was a Windy & Carl single – how poetic. The cool thing about each of these discs is that they each come with a cover handpainted by Windy herself – no two are alike. Below you can see an example of a cover and it’s quite pretty and pleasing to the eye. Windy’s abstract cover art is just fantastic to ogle at; Windy’s done it for other tapes and CDs they’ve released too. Since this is signed and numbered, it is $10 more but I purchased it anyway. Enough of my blabbering, check out “I Walked Alone” and “At Night” below and see what you think of them. Cheers!
This ORANGE COLOR VINYL edition of our new single in celebration of our 20th anniversary is limited to 100 Hand Numbered & Autographed copies. Covers are hand painted by Windy. Unlike the RED Vinyl edition, these covers are not folded in half & are suitable for framing.
