Chvrches - Now Is The Time
Premiere from RSD release, Recover EP
I tried to post this fantastic track when the Recover EP when it first leaked some weeks back only to have it pulled by the label. Coast should be clear now that’s been officially out, with the RSD vinyl release no less. The Recover EP is the second vinyl release from Chvrches, following the epic Mother We Share 10” that’s been garnering $75-$150 on ebay. Seems these guys are the biggest hit of 2013, and with good reason. Be prepared to shell out $50-$70 for a copy of the Recover EP vinyl if you’re serious. Its Ltd to only 500 copies on translucent orange vinyl, so with that few copies it’s gonna keep the price up beyond jus being a RSD release. I think this was the jewel of Record Store Day 2013, and honestly its a shame that it was a UK only release, and pressed in such a short number considering their popularity right now. Seriously people are scalping concert tickets on ebay for $100 to sold out shows. I didn’t make the recent NYC one, but a friend of mine went and said it was the most hipstery event he’d ever witnessed. That I don’t doubt, but regardless of the hype, I don’t think its overblown at all. Let’s hope these guys can keep up songs this catchy for a full length.
