Digital Leather - Infinite Sun - 12"
NEW. VOLAR RECORDS. After seeing releases on Goner, Shattered, and Fat Possum, S. FOREE of DIGITAL LEATHER began working on his next LP, only to see his friend and manager, JAY REATARD, pass away suddenly. His deal with Fat Possum expired, he fired his booking agent and publicist, and retreated to Berlin for some much needed time away. Over time he began working again via a Kickstarter campaign that allowed him to purchase the gear he needed to record in various locales (i.e. various friends' bedrooms), and this mini-LP, Infinite Sun, shows Foree at his sharpest, tongue-somewhat-in-cheekily misanthropic and creating a batch of his best songs yet. "I intended Infinite Sun to sound like music you could travel through space to," he told me, and it makes perfect sense. The highlight of the record, "Sea of Hate," was, according to Foree, co-written by Jay Reatard post-mortem in a dream. It's really a fantastic record, I can't wait for everyone to hear it.
