New Golden Smog EP Due April 24th
You may recall that, around the time last summer that Golden Smog released Another Fine Day, its first album in eight years, the band announced that it also had an eight-song EP in the can which would come out in the fall of 2006. Well, that release date pretty much came and went (just as Another Fine Day did too, sadly), and I had started to wonder if we were ever going to hear this EP.
Well, sometime-reader Joel points out today that the EP finally has a release date -- April 24th. Entitled Blood on the Slacks, the disc will include six original songs, together with covers of David Bowie's "Starman" and Dinosaur Jr.'s "Tarpit". No word on pre-sale yet, or whether the song titles themselves will be clever plays on Dylan song titles. "Idiot (Breaks) Wind"? "You're a Really Big Girl"? The possibilities are endless.
