Novella - Eat Yourself
Normally I’d post some new random pic from my sEcReTz archive, and even though I posted it last time, this simply beautiful album art deserves to be up again. Just received my Novella 12” in the mail today from Italian Beach Babes, and it’s better and longer playing than I would’ve imagined. The longer playing I only note, because @ a 5-track EP this baby clocks in at nearly 27min, longer than many full lengths these days. Quantity over quality never dictates, but when you get amble of both its perfect. I’m quite surprised to see this sold out
all over the place including all my usual distro haunts that tend to have a copy or two after the labels out. *Update some copies remain directly from the band.* The vinyl is heavy weight 180g, with a super glossy cover art slip cover. I’d say it reminds me of early Dum Dum Girls, mostly clean sounding all girl vocals, but not overly studio polished (like in my opinion the lastest LP from Dee Dee). This is definitely gonna be on heavy summertime rotation! The vinyl came with a digital download, so that should be floating round the tubes soon enough.
Definitely keep an eye on the label; Italian Beach Babes seem to be be on a roll with 3 stellar releases including Dirty Beaches, Fear of Men, and now Novella.
Novella - s/t EP is Ltd to 300 copies on heavy weight 180g vinyl and still available from the band here.
