I think if I had a vintage jukebox in my man cave, I could just stuff that thing full of Hidden Volume 7” and I’d be happy for years. The newest release from the Baltimore based label is from Japanese three-piece The Routes: three fuzz-laden blasts of garage-punk greatness that sound as if they could have been unearthed from the vaults and found on a 1968 Sunset Strip compilation. Total run of 300 copies with the first 100 on Coke Bottle Clear vinyl. Pick one up before they’re gone and experience (as the label so perfectly describes) The NOW Sound of Now!

The Details

The A-Side is the heavy stomp of "Meant To Be", the flip are two covers "Why I Cry" (The Fortune Seekers) and "I Said Move" (The Aztex) that hit like Back From The Grave played through a meat grinder. Limited edition of 300, First 100 copies are on Coke Bottle Green, packaged in an X10 designed Stoughton tip-on super thick jacket and a download card. FUZZ.
