Topshelf Records and Count Your Lucky Stars have teamed up for a limited split release between Chicago’s Joie de Vivre and New Jersey’s Prawn. They really pulled out all the stops on this album, releasing a limited number of various colorways: 300 on “Dookie Brown” vinyl exclusive to CYLS, 300 on “Red(ish)” vinyl exclusive to TSR, and 400 on Silver vinyl to round out this first pressing.
The EP features 3 new tracks from Joie de Vivre, recorded and mixed by Mark Gustafson in Rockford, IL at MIA Studios, and 2 new tracks from Prawn, which were recorded at their home studio in Ridgewood, NJ and mastered by Dave Downham (Up, Up, Down, Down & Into It.
