Like a phoenix from…(ok, I’ll spare you), The Spirit of the Beehive has risen from the punk grave of Philly-favorites, Glocca Morra. Originally released as a limited-run cassette (150 copies) on Ranch Records, The Spirit of the Beehive is finally getting the vinyl treatment it deserves. Ice Age Records calls the band’s self-titled debut “eleven songs of reverb-soaked, droopy, drippy, lethargic, melancholy, fuzzed out post-punk.” Seriously, these guys are awesome. There are three versions of this record; all of the logistics about the various pressings is down below. If you click “Buy Now” it’ll take you to the Ice Age Records web-shop (which has the black and clear vinyl), but if you want the orange pressing make sure to go to the Ranch Records site. If you want all three pressings for $25, you should go here.
