Date added: 09/13/2012 September Flexi is TORTOISE!
We are very pleased to announce that the September installment of the 2012 Flexi Disc Series is the amazing track "HOT COFFEE" from legendary post-rockers Tortoise!
Our fandom of Tortoise goes way back. And I mean WAAAYYYY back. JNR's founder first heard Tortoise when he received a dubbed cassette of their 1994 s/t album as a gift from his first girlfriend... in his freshman year of high school. No foolin! So needless to say, we are more than a little excited to be working with a band that has been so formative to our label, and a band who has continued to produce some of the best damn records we have ever heard.
The flexi track "HOT COFFEE" is top notch Tortoise. Recorded specifically for our humble flexi series by John McEntire at his Soma studio, the track continues the trajectory of their 2009 masterpiece "Beacons of Ancestorship" (which, if you don't have it, you should purchase from Thrill Jockey).
If you missed out on the SOLD OUT Flexi Disc series but still want to get in on this goodness (and want to get a head start on the 2013 subscription), we have a waiting list going. If you would like to sign up for the waiting list please do so HERE and we will contact you if someone cancels their subscription. <3 JNR
