“Wrap the Body (Yea Big Megamix Feat. Kid Static & Stak)”

Racebannon, known for their sludgy, metal-y, noisy, punky music, have recently released a “DJ-styled” 12-inch for their track, “Wrap The Body.” Yes, readers: Racebannon’s music will be played by DJ douchbags all across the nation! The 12-inch, limited to 500 copies, features various incarnations of the track, including the requisite instrumental and a capella versions, as well as remixes by Jilly Weiss (We Are Hex), Yea Big, and Billy Corgan? Maybe!

Richmond, VA’s Cristal are set to release their latest full-length, Homegoing, on the always awesome FSS label. The album shows the group — Jimmy Anthony, Gregg Darden and Bobby Donne (with Taylor Burton on cello) — expanding their experimental sonics into more melodic territory — relatively speaking, of course. While the album will be available separately, the label is also pressing 500 copies of a Cristal 7-inch (with two vinyl-only tracks — “Swedish Child,” “Trial”) that includes a download code for the full Homegoing album. Music made easy, my friends. The 7-inch and album combo is set for release on July 19.
