City Slang: Ghostly news

Ann Arbor-based label Ghostly International has announced that it will be releasing a split EP featuring HTRK and Tropic of Cancer, part of the Part-Time Punks Sessions.

According to a press release, “Comparable to a fly-on-a-wall Peel Sessions, the critically acclaimed Part Time Punks radio show is the sound of the LA underground, run by local icon Michael Stock. The limited split captures both bands live at the radio headquarters during HTRK’s first 2011 tour of the USA, accompanied by comrades in minimalism and melancholia, Tropic of Cancer. Flipping this vinyl sounds like two sides of the same cursed coin, and mirrors a high school dance playing an endless lustful waltz. BPMs bumped down to a psychic stalk. It’s a broken and beautiful memento.”

In addition, the label is hosting a showcase TONIGHT (Wednesday, October 17) in Manhattan alongside NY label Cascine, if you happen to be over in NYC (cheering the Tigers against the Yankees).

There will be performances by: Rush Midnight, Selebrities, Erika Spring, Choir of Young Believers, Chad Valley, and Michna.
