Condition: Near Mint
Label: Bird Records
Release Date: 4/14/2015
Catalog #: EGGS 020EP
Jane Weaver follows her acclaimed 2014 album The Silver Globe (EGGS 019CD/LP) with a split single of free, visionary, exciting independent pop music. Album highlight "Don't Take My Soul" (co-produced by Andy Votel) combines domestic synthpop with falsetto melodics and 10cc-sounding prog pop arrangements, something like Kate Bush karaoke fused with a J-pop Erykah Badu. The track ends with a guitar solo from Badly Drawn Boy that sounds like a cryogenic experiment from his pre-Bewilderbeast days. Label-mate Tender Prey (Laura Bryon) brings her inimitable drummy saccharine-tinged pow-wow punk to the fray with the effortless "Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of My Heart."
