A fun yet moody 7" record featuring music of the same sort of vibes as a smokey night club full of rubbery cartoon characters has really late on a Friday night. Vaguely sounding like Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, the inbred and ever-undulating staff members of L'Avons eked out this couple of oddball soundtrack tunes last winter during a week long recording freeze-in. The wide open flat spaces of government-subsidized GMO cornfields in Illinois makes some small town people with creative leanings do some silly shit for kicks.
