Record Store Day 2013
FatCat Records are proud to announce three special projects produced in limited editions exclusively for Record Store Day, 20 April 2013.
The Twilight Sad
The Twilight Sad vs Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat Split 7ʺ (7FAT124)
UK & Europe only - Limited to 500 copies
Black litho print on eco-natural recycled board with hand stamped labels
Following last year's hugely successful album No One Can Ever Know: Remixes, The Twilight Sad have teamed up with fellow Scots Bill Wells and Aidan Moffat for a split single which sees the jazz pianist and former Arab Strap frontman produce a low key, piano led reading of Alphabet, the opening track from No One Can Ever Know.
On the other side, The Twilight Sad have re-imagined ‘(If You) Keep Me In Your Heart’ from Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat’s brilliant album Everything’s Getting Older.
Population Density / Governing Correctly Remix 12" (12FAT087)
UK & Europe only - Limited to 1000 copies on purple vinyl
London-based outfit Breton have meanwhile issued a one-off 12" of remixes by Artwork and Busy P.
Governing Correctly, taken from last year’s debut album ‘Other People’s Problems’, is a nod to Daft Punk and DFA, common influences for the band as a whole.
“The fact that Busy P was into one of our tracks was such an amazing experience, but when he sent us the remix he had made of it, we all lost our minds, and were in a state of total bliss for days, just playing it over and over again.
Population Density is about making music in a small room that you only share with 5 people, and then finding out that it has outgrown the room and has a life of its own.
The remix is by Artwork and he has turned it into something that sounds like a slab of pure Detroit.”
The Midnight Organ Fight / Quietly Now LP (FATLP70XLTD)
Worldwide - Limited to 1000 copies on double heavyweight vinyl
2013 saw Frightened Rabbit achieve breakthrough success with their major label debut Pedestrian Verse, but newer fans may not be aware of what many critics hailed as their first great album, 2008’s The Midnight Organ Fight.
Released here on double vinyl alongside Quietly Now, a live acoustic version of the album recorded in a tiny pub in Glasgow, The Midnight Organ Fight was an instant classic, received with near universal acclaim.
This is the first time The Midnight Organ Fight has been available on vinyl in the US, and the first time Quietly Now has available on vinyl anywhere. Each album will also include one of four limited edition 12" art prints.
