First vinyl release by Miami's epic post-crunk r&b power-duo AWESOME NEW REPUBLIC.
The pride and joy of Miami that is John Hancock ANR and B Rob E Robertson have previously released two well-received full-length CDs and are hitting you with a brand new red, white and blue 12" just in time for the crisp autumn months. This genre-bending EP contains 4 tracks that will make the kids rethink their assumptions about what dance, pop, r&b and soul have to do with indie rock as they know it.
Track synopses: 1) GO 2 BED WITH NORTH KOREA - a sweaty, synthy, durrty-durrty dancefloor rave-up about everyone's favorite fade-sporting dictator; 2) JAPANESE SUBTITLES - sounding a bit like Lionel Richie fronting the Boredoms, or perhaps the Junior Boys facing off against David Byrne and Peter Gabriel in a tribal blip-hop ballad contest; 3) HARDER EVERY TIME - a funky little r&b gem diguising a musical prayer to end Kylie Minogue's bout with breast cancer; 4) PARACHUTE THE MOVIE - the ultimate political soul jam of our time, so sexy and triumphant clothes have been known to remove themselves upon listening. There you have it: ALL PARTY TALKS. Post-crunk and hard as hell!!!!
Hand-numbered limited edition of 1000 TRANSLUCENT BLUE VINYL with artwork by rising Miami art star Reeve Schumacher and packaged with insert designed by the band themselves. This is also the first release on SUTRO, a new label based out of Miami's best (and only) indie music store, Sweat Records.
