album stream :: Fond Han / Mattress Financial > Private Split

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Early runner up for late night record of the year goes to this new split cassette from Fond Han (Thomas Baumann of Neur and Hot Fang) and Mattress Financial (Sam Rosenberg of Two Inch Astronaut). Released by GT favs, Exploding In Sound Records, the split shows off a more intimate, dreamy, experimental side of these two post-punkers. Stream the whole tape right now or listen late at night (your choice).

Listen (as late as possible plz).

You can, and let’s face it, you probably should purchase Private Split right now @ the EIS bandcamp.

Do I get bonus points for not using the word “lofi”? I think so.
