I was first introduced to this record on a tour a few summers ago. The Aasee Lake were from the Kentucky area and share a similar aesthetic as bands like: Rodan, Slint, June of 44, Shipping News and Sonora Pine. You may be familiar with the split they did with At The Drive-In that came out the same year. On top of these records they also recorded a full length. Although it was never officially released you can snag it from The Sirens Sound.
This record has been on my want list for quite sometime. I had a highly compressed and poor rip that kept me semi-satisfied. This afternoon however, I stopped by the Broadway location of Reckless Records and during a brief session of sifting found this bad boy for $1.99. The record itself is in near mint condition which made the transfer a breeze. As you may have noticed the turnaround time was quick, if nobody else enjoys this at least you can rest assured that I have a superior rip for my portable media player.
