A somewhat conceptual release, "Cause & Effect" features three separate split 7" records, which each adhere to an overarching theme: an infuential, historically-significant solo musician on Side A, and the modern result of that musical influence on Side B.
The first of an annual volume, "Cause & Effect Vol. 1" features new unreleased recordings from Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr., Folk Implosion), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), and David Yow (The Jesus Lizard), coupled with the current, fully-formed musical projects Dumb Numbers, Talk Normal, and Child Bite. Each Side B track corresponds to the musical trajectory set in motion by the former. Cause (side a) and Effect (side b).
All three 7"s are sold together in one super elaborate package, featuring new amazing artwork (and sketches of each band) by Shawn K Knight
