Well, it’s finally happened. Arts & Crafts records has finally let us know exactly when their X album will be available.
In case you haven’t been following, X is a collaborations record, featuring almost the whole stable of A&C artists, playing and reinterpreting each others’ tunes. I was hoping for a Record Store Day release, but that didn’t happen.
I sat down with Jeffrey Remedios of Arts & Crafts a few months ago, and he was pretty cagey about the whole thing.
A&C has one of the strongest rosters in the country. Each band has a really distinct sound, too; I mean, how great would it be for Zeus to rework a Broken Social Scene song in a similar fashion to what they did to Stone Temple Pilots.
You’ll be able to pick up X on May 28th in LP, CD and digital formats. Sweetness.
Here’s the release: Arts & Crafts X
