due to popular demand, we've pressed up a "regular"/non-deluxe version of the kurt vile / steve gunn collaborative LP from the "parallelogram" series. same great audio! different but totally great art and packaging! includes insert and download.

kurt vile and steve gunn collaborated for their contributions to the parallelogram series. the two artists, originally connected by mutual friends and geographic proximity, have long pushed the other’s continued artistic development. despite sharing many live stages over the years, this installation of parallelogram represents the first time that the two have worked together in the studio. vile’s side sees him recast tracks by john prine (“way back when”) and randy newman (“pretty boy,” featuring some truly electric guitar flourishes from gunn) as if they were KV originals. the theme of reinvention continues with vile tearing through a solo banjo rendition of his “red apples” (originally from his god is saying this to you… LP), retitled here as “red apples for tom scharpling.” gunn takes on a late period nico track, “60/40,” and pulls a lysergic rocker out of the track’s goth-ish roots. the bulk of gunn’s contribution is the epically winding “spring garden,” a track in the vein of some of his other long-form guitar excursions. featuring signature contributions from vile and mary lattimore, this hypnotizing cut is unmistakably a new classic in gunn’s catalog.

the kurt vile and steve gunn collaborative LP is pressed on 140 gram dutch black vinyl by record industry and housed within a full color gatefold jacket an accompanied by a download coupon for DRM-free digital files of the downloader's choice.
