Back in our first year of operation, Group Tightener approached us with their very own inaugural 7″ release for the then-newly breaking artist Best Coast. The record turned into our third 7″ project at the time, and eventually our first re-pressing project at the time (after only about 3 weeks, they sold out of the first pressing of 500 units; and it didn’t take them very long to sell out of the 500 record second pressing as well).
Well, after a couple years of working together, we were completely stoked when Group Tightener approached us about doing another re-pressing of this 7″ — but, this time, giving it true justice by cutting it at 45 rpm, making it a double gatefold 7″ package, and pressing it on color wax! We are pumped to announce that these records have now shipped, and you can grab them while they last from Group Tightener direct and many indie retailers on yellow wax — or from a very select few indie retailers on ultra-limited CLEAR vinyl (only 200 copies were made on clear wax).
Design and photography for the deluxe gatefold 7″ jacket were done by Drew Heffron. Online purchases of the record will ship the week of November 15th, and the records will be available through indie retailers that same week.
