In an effort to capture a musician’s geography and mirror it against another, Oakland label Gold Robot launches a new themed 7″ series that pairs bands from different regions. For the first installment, Oakland’s Colossal Yes offers “Backbiter Blues” while the b-side, “Be Like Us”, comes from The Good Fear (from Fayetteville, Arkansas). The split is a limited run on colored vinyl, available to purchase on the Gold Robot website.

Colossal Yes – “Backbiter Blues”

The Good Fear – “Be Like Us”

A bit more about the release:

Each band submitted barn-burner 5 minute tracks which capture both their unique sounds and a general reconstruction of their respective towns. Artwork is provided by photographers from each region (Elise Irving from California, and Rett Peek from Arkansas).
