STEFAN CHRISTENSEN - OPEN DAY 7"
STEFAN CHRISTENSEN - OPEN DAY 7" (IDDB)
Following a slew of recent solo releases, this is the first vinyl single from Stefan Christensen, known from New Haven, CT bands like Estrogen Highs and Permanent Feels. Like a one-legged Crazy Horse sort of walking on the Xpressway towards the Twisted Village and stopping by Columbus, Ohio for a minute, these 5 tracks range from Galbraithian over-before-it-began cassette-folk (Open Day) to V-3 like smutty, downer rock (Brass City Dilemma and Braille), accidently scratching a few Precious Metal lathe cuts in-between. Christensen manoeuvres the 4-track recorder like there is no tomorrow, mixing down dirge but at the same time oddly uplifting and smashing songs that are just as immediate as they are life-affirming somewhere in all their distorted and tape-saturated gloom.
200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 33rpm.
