OLDE GROWTH S/T LP HPR-251
Olde Growth's debut LP is finally available on vinyl! Originally released in 2011 on Meteor City in CD format, the vinyl features a whole new re-mix and mastering job special for this release. If you are not familiar with Olde Growth, We highly recommend you check them out. OG play sludge metal, but not in the way you are used to hearing sludge these days. What makes them stand apart from the crowd is the fact they have no guitar! Just bass and drums. But this in no way limits the sound of the band… just the opposite. Without a lead guitar hogging the spotlight and drowning out the bass, Stephen is able to bring to the front his amazing talent on the four-string. Even when Phil Martin was mastering the release he didn't realize there was no guitar, as with the FX peddles and mad skills Stephen exhibits playing the bass, you simply just don't miss the guitar at all. Ryan's drumming is a complete compliment to the bass playing. Coming from a punk/hardcore background, Ryan hits hard and heavy in a slow groovy fashion; impossible to explain, only to be heard. Watching these guys play live is hypnotic and mesmerizing, never a boring moment as you are forced to nod your head to the slow stony riffs and atmospheric interludes between them. I can't say that OG sound like anybody at all really. They fit in well with the sludge family, but offer so much more!
As you know, here at HPRX we are always looking for creative ways to present a new release. After talking to the band and learning a bit about them, I challenged my team of helpers and advisors to come up with something special for this release. We think the choices made represent the band and their social, economic and environmental views. The cover is made of 18pt recycled chipboard. Completely hand made from the folding and gluing, to the screen printing (by Phil M. and myself). The ink is made of an environmentally safe, non-toxic, vegetable base that is rated safe for children's toy manufacturing. Even the record insert is printed on recycled paper! The custom made brown vinyl looks amazing and all the scraps from the pressing were reclaimed and mixed with a recycled green vinyl to create our forest green looking wax. As far as we know this is indeed the "greenest" vinyl record release ever! Trying to find a creative twist on printing the cover, as we always do with the hand-made releases, we decided to print the cover with a reversed opening. Trying a few options, this was the most interesting to me. Probably because of my obsession with the Melvins and how the past few years they themselves have been releasing "backwards" covers for all their releases…cover on back, song titles on front! We also choose along with the band to not have any writing, text, logos or anything but artwork on the cover. So you can actually choose what side you want the front to be. In the end, this is by far one of my favorite HPRX covers…. everyone an amazing piece of art to be treasured!
