Love Tractor Share 60 Degrees and Sunny Video
Tomorrow is the next installment of Record Store Day, and while not always a fan of RSD, it’s definitely important to support every single indie record store to help keep them all afloat. Plus, you get to find some gems that you might not otherwise have had on your radar, like the 60 Degrees & Sunny/FESTI-Vals 7″ from legendary Athens outfit Love Tractor. If you’ve listened to their debut self-titled LP from 1982, these songs should be familiar, but they’ve been reworked with help from members of REM/Sugar/Glands, so you get a fresh sound. The new reworking offers you a nice visual accompaniment featuring various weather phenomena. What I love is that it gives you an early glimpse at post rock, before it became boring; actually, check that, this is like instrumental music for Flying Nun fans; it was cool before they were cool…you’re going to have it on repeat all day. The 7″ comes out tomorrow via HHBTM, with an expanded reissue of the full-length on November 6th.
