Best news I’ve come across for a long time! Triptides are issuing their brilliant Colors EP for the first time on wax (2014 digital/cassette), and has teamed up with one of the most exciting labels around for some very limited and completely mindboggling custom Vinyl variants.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again; Triptides¬†are¬†truly¬†some of the finest purveyors of sunny psych sounds around! Reverbed licks and hazy vocals, snappy drums and groovy basslines, all perfectly arranged into psyched up pop-pearls that lifts your spirits and sticks that smile right on your face.¬†Their sounds are instantly catchy and easygoing,¬†and at the same time inhabits¬†those small melodic variations in the arrangements that enriches their tunes through repeated listening.¬†Goddamn how much I love this bunch..

While their whole catalogue (counting 7 album¬†+ numerous Eps and singles) is a total bliss, this EP contains some of Triptides’ finest moments. Be sure to check it out underneath, 6 sweet’n salty treats to¬†leave you in¬†the sun gazed haze of a lazy sunday afternoon!

Melbourne’s own Salty Dog Records always takes pride in coming up with the¬†sickest custom variants, and the¬†Brunswick East based¬†one-man operation has really set the bar high¬†with this release. Truly some of the finest pieces of wax I’ve ever seen, act fast or miss out!
