MUST LISTEN: Sunny Day Real Estate – “Lipton Witch”

Record Store Day was yesterday, and there were plenty of releases for fans of all genres to look forward to. One of those releases was a split between Circa Survive and Sunny Day Real Estate. This split is particularly exciting because SDRE haven’t released new music together in fourteen years. While I do love Circa Survive, SDRE’s “Lipton Witch” is definitely the biggest reason to grab the split. You can give it a listen by taking a look below the jump.

If you missed out on grabbing the split yesterday, you can always try to pick it up on …

Required Listening: Circa Survive – “Scentless Apprentice” (Nirvana Cover)

It’s Record Store Day! We hope those of you who were able to shop this morning got out and did your part to celebrate and support the industry we’ve dedicated our lives to covering, but even if you left as soon as you woke up today there is a good chance you came home with a few items missing from your RSD wish list. We cannot help you acquire those records, but we can help you experience some of the music you may be missing.

Circa Survive were one of a dozen artists chosen to cover a song off Nirvana

Circa Survive, Thursday To Contribute To Nirvana Tribute Album

In honor of the 15th anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero and Robot Empire Records’ 100th release, the label will release a tribute album titled  In Utero: In Tribute: In Entirety.

The release will include tracks recorded by Thursday, Jay Reatard, Whirr, Circa Survive and more.

“It has been a privilege to introduce so many unique bands to likeminded freaks over the past 15 years. Looking back at what’s transpired almost seems unreal, and even with a shameful carbon footprint of many thousand plastic circles – I can safely say that it has been an honor to work with the artists …

Sunny Day Real Estate, Circa Survive Announce Split Featuring First New SDRE Song In 14 Years

You read that headline correctly. Sunny Day Real Estate will be releasing a split with Circa Survive for Record Store Day, featuring brand new material from both bands. For those of you keeping track at home, this marks the first new Sunny Day Real Estate song since their 2000 record, The Rising Tide. The track, titled “Lipton Witch,” was likely conceived during unresolved recording sessions following the band’s reunion in 2009. Circa Survive is contributing “Bad Heart,” a song recorded after the Violent Waves sessions in 2012.

The split’s artwork was done by Chris Thompson, who contributed artwork …

After a chaotic return in 2013 that was marred by bad weather, delays, and poor planning, Skate and Surf Festival has pulled out all of the stops to make the 2014 edition, which takes place May 17 and 18 in Middletown, New Jersey, a memorable one for all the right reasons.

VINYL REVIEW: Circa Survive – ‘Juturna’

Artist: Circa Survive
Album: Juturna
Label: Equal Vision Records
Original release date: June 20, 2005

After Anthony Green’s upsetting departure from Saosin, I immediately began to follow his every move, and because of that, in 2005, Juturna became the first CD I ever pre-ordered. I had listened to The Inuit Sessions a thousand times since its release in the 3 months preceding Juturna‘s, and based on those first 4 glorious tracks released by Circa Survive, I just knew that Juturna was going to be an album I had to own.

Over 8 years later, here I am with a …

WEEKLY WAX: Vinyl Releases For The Week Of 11/24 – 11/30

Black Friday has come and gone, and if you’re anything like me, you probably spent just a little more money than you wanted to on records. The deals were just so good though!

Outside of all of the label sales, a lot of great records went up for sale this week. Circa Survive made the biggest waves with represses of their very hard to find albums, Juturna and On Letting Go, but ShopRadioCast piqued all of our interests with hints at a repressing of Brand New’s Deja Entendu.
