So you already have all of The Strokes vinyl releases, but you were still thinking of picking up that “Is This It” split color re-release…but you really don’t need it. Stop immediately and pick this up instead. A nice little 7″ of Strokes-like garage-ness with a dash of the V.U. and a splash of Unknown Mortal Orchestra thrown in, The Sweets have put together a new four-song EP for your listening pleasure, all pressed on beautiful blue glow-in-the-dark wax.

The Details

After spending most of 2013 releasing free digital EPs and various cassettes, North Carolina’s THE SWEETS have returned with 4 newly recorded favorites from their fast-growing catalog to press on this 45rpm 7″ single out on Bleeding Gold 24 March 2014. This edition of 250 copies features Glow-Blue-In-The-Dark vinyl with awesomely-pervy artwork by Rafal Karcz.

Zach and Justin are two brothers from Winston-Salem, NC. They formed The Sweets in December of 2012 with their friends Justin Morris and Danner Washburn. The Sweets play garage pop and made it their goal to release an EP a month throughout 2013 while attending college in New York City and Asheville. A compilation of their better self-released songs, titled Greatest Hits, was released in January 2014 by DZ Tapes. After sharing two split cassettes (Just the Dudes & Zing Zang out on Bleeding Gold) with their NC girlfriends Petey, The Sweets are set to release their first 7’’ record on Bleeding Gold Records in March 2014. Yes daddy.

“Their woozy sound is a sugary smudge of lo-fi colour.” - NME Magazine

”Think of the Modern Lovers transported to 1992 and trying to cover the third Velvet Underground record after too many muscle relaxers and a pint of vodka.” – Cyrus Atkins, Fabricoh Magazine
