We don't usually post when we're CLOSED but Erika Elder, Matt Valentine (Wet Tuna etc), and Ramble Records had the vision to schedule this long-weekend-of-a-record for release on Good Friday. On Green Ark MV & EE play a longhaul, transcendent rock 'n' roll that expansions upon the end-of-the-90s era Royal Trux. Think Accelerator or the Radio Video EP at half speed. Dense studio trickery meets human spontaneity with a result that's kind of like The Weird American Folk/Psych Underground's answer to the first 3 Funkadelic albums. - Nic
