Atlanta’s Black Lips are releasing a limited-run 10” vinyl EP, titled This Sick Beat!, for this year’s Record Store Day “Black Friday” event, scheduled for Friday, November 24th.
Produced by Sean Lennon (who helmed the band’s most recent album, Satan’s Graffiti or God’s Art?), the platter includes two new songs (“58 Drops” and “Ask for the Wolfman,” the latter inspired by the old low-budget “Wolfman and Donna” TV commercials for Atlanta’s Gallery Furniture store) and new mixes of a pair of tracks from Satan’s Graffiti. This Sick Beat! is limited to 1,000 copies.
Held every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving, RSD’s “Black Friday” promotion supports independent record retailers with a bevy of special releases appealing to collectors and diehard music fans.
