We’ve about worn the needle through our copy of The Marble Vanity’s debut single from Slow Fizz Records [which you can still snag - and listen to here] So it comes with good timing that our friends announce the release of their debut full length record. The S/T record will drop from Slow Fizz in just a few short weeks on May 22nd – and if it’s anything like that first single, we’ll have plenty of jams to soundtrack our Summer with.

Our first taste of the new record comes from the track “Autumn Woods” which you can check at the bottom of the post. It’s pretty killer. Stoked!
The week is SLAMMED with good shows. Marty Stuart is at Grimey’s this evening [dude's a ruler, don't deny it], and there’s a SICK shows at Emma with Michael Chapman and William Tyler. Tomorrow brings us great shows at Foobar Too with R. Stevie Moore and Melbourne’s Dick Diver and at the Rat Snake Lodge…
