RIYL: Beach Fossils, Deerhunter, Slowdive

Label: Newbury Comics

Did you miss the limited edition blue marble vinyl back in 2012 from Captured Track? If so, Newbury Comics has pressed a purple marbled vinyl edition limited to 500 pressings. This would make it the most limited version available (sorta). NC always likes to ratchet up the price on their vinyl so if you wait, you may find a 20% off discount, however, this may be gone by then… Do what you will.

DIIV is the nom-de-plume of Z. Cole Smith, musical provocateur and frontman of an atmospheric and autumnally-charged new Brooklyn four-piece. DIIV created instant vibrations in the blog-world with their impressionistic debut single “Sometime,” which found it’s way onto the esteemed pages of Pitchfork and Altered Zones a mere matter of weeks after the group’s formation.

Enlisting the aid of NYC indie-scene-luminary, Devin Ruben Perez, former Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt, and Mr. Smith’s childhood friend Andrew Bailey, DIIV craft a sound that is at once familial and frost-bitten. Indebted to classic kraut, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, and the primitive-crunch of late-80s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence on their debut LP, Oshin.

Album includes printed insert and a digital download.
