Pre-Order Women’s “Public Strain” To Get A Bonus 7″

Service Animal b/w Grey Skies

That’s right, folks. When you pre-order Women’s stellar new record, “Public Strain,” you’ll get a limited edition 7″ that includes two brand new, non-album, tracks. Here’s a little more info on the songs:

Both tracks on this limited 7″ deliver additional insight into the collision of style that informs Women’s complex new album. “Grey Skies,” a pristine, 1950′s slow dance weeper is a throwback to an era when musical composition wasn’t entirely hinged-upon irony. “Service Animal” seamlessly bounces upon charmingly polarized guitar phrases and 60′s inspired melody.”

WOMEN Tour With Abe Vigoda, Crystal Stilts And Chad Van Gaalen

This past fall we fell for the music made by the men from Calgary called WOMEN despite their inevitably ungoogleable band name. Their great pop sensibility channeled through a rough and ready experimental lo-fi sound leaves enough surprises that we continually find it lodged in nooks and crannies in my head. Like a teenage boy, we just can’t seem to get WOMEN off our collective mind! Now you too will have a chance to hear what the buzz is all about. On March 8 WOMEN embark on a coast to coast tour of the United States including three days at South By Southwest, and shows with Crystal Stilts, Abe Vigoda, and the producer of their self-titled debut album, Mr. Chad Van Gaalen. Come hear what the glorious ruckus is all about.
