v i r g o v a n d a l Just hit Cherry Creek Trail in Colorado on a 40 mile ride cycling to this album. Now I can not stop listening. The really odd thing here is that I had no idea Jim Blaha was involved. After watching The Blind Shake explosively open for Thee Oh Sees at the Gothic in Denver & now wearing my 2nd vinyl of Seriousness down, I'm really not surprised that this album is this good. Both Police Street & Shards make me smile. Favorite track: At a Loss.

David Green Great garage rock sound. Bouncing tunes, no wasted effort.

Carl Bezanson I just heard Find A New World on WFMU and immediately bought the record. Please come to LA when the world calms down.

agutterfan Sounds like covers of classic garage rock or punk rock songs, but they're all original. Standout track "With That Face" runs along a great guitar/bass/drum groove, checkout excellent video www.youtube.com/watch?v=Id0WSwmxJMs. Favorite track: With That Face.

about

Slovenly Recordings is proud to present the debut hard copy from GREEN / BLUE: manually opening up a can of syrupy tones and pouring them down upon our daily bread. Each track cuts through a work uniform and plugs guitars directly into a human heart, encapsulated by a fully functioning warm body, which is either hugging a pillow and singing along to the 80% cocoa bittersweet dual vocals of Jim Blaha (The Blind Shake) and Annie Sparrows (The Soviettes), or revving the engine to the stoner, greaseball anthems of high motility.

The Green / Blue sound is primarily influenced by visual art, or more specifically, collages (“‘cause you can grab from anywhere and make a new story with it” - J.B.) and inverts itself for manifest on the album artwork, also performed by Mr. Blaha. His recent discovery and newfound love for lo-fi pop jangle (The Clean, The Chills and early GBV, as well as longtime JAMC lust) represents a bit of a sonic departure (not to be mistaken with maturity) for the label as well.

Each fat track was recorded on the thinnest of tape in the basement studio of Blaha's Minneapolis home. What originated from batches of his home-brewed solo songs and electronic experiments, Green/Blue developed into a four-piece live force after adding Danny Henry (The Soviettes) on drums and Hideo Takahashi (Birthday Suits) on bass.
