Louisville, Kentucky – August 7th, 2018
Louisville, Kentucky’s Gubbey Records is extremely pleased to announce the release of the forth volume in our split seven inch series and our 50th release! Volume four is between Chicago’s rock trio Mutts and Louisville’s progressive punk group Satellite Twin to be released on 8/18. For decades, Louisville and Chicago bands have shared a common thread, interweaving and intersecting. We are here to continue this great tradition forward.
The two bands have teamed up to bring you a very diverse and very intriguing seven inch. Mutts were once called by a reviewer “Tom Waits fronting a garage rock band” and while we think that is a great stepping off point, their tune on this seven inch “Better Believe It” is that and so much more. It is a hard driving blues infused song with beautiful gruff and husky vocals. Satellite Twin deliver an eclectic prog/punk tune “We’ll Make Fires”. The song utilizes a strong rhythm with angular guitars that paint around the edges and vocals that build and rage.
This single also serves as a jumping off point for both bands, each are working on EP’s to be released later this year.
The seven inch is limited to 300 copies and is on mixed color marble vinyl, each one is unique. The record will also come accompanied with a download code for a high quality digital download of the single.
The record will be released on Aug 18th in Louisville at Kaiju. The show line-up will be Satellite Twin, Mutts and Sheri Streeter, 10pm, $5. Sheri Streeter will also be digitally releasing a single called “Love in the Time of Hate” on the same day that will be available on all relevant streaming and download services.
