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!
