Robbers On High Street Set EP Release
It will be release both digitally and as a limited edition, hand pressed vinyl. CD fans need not apply.
The EP was originally only available via PledgeMusic to those who pre-ordered the group's third LP, Hey There Golden Hair and pledged for other exclusive items, according to Tijuana Gift Shop.
TGS had these additional details about the EP: "The Letter," possibly the most obscure track the band has ever recorded, is an outtake from Hey There Golden Hair. "It was originally supposed to lead into 'Happy Horses Always' and we recorded it in tandem as one long seven and a half minute stretch of tape," explains singer/guitarist Ben Trokan. "But when it came time to sequence the album it didn't fit with the other tunes so we chopped them in two. You can actually hear where the tape runs out at the very end of the fade on 'The Letter'."
The other tunes were recorded and mixed in a series of weekends at Dunham Studio. No demos, no rehearsals, the band just ran through the tunes while producer Matt Shane was set up and captured sounds. "We actually work really well under time constraints and knowing that the sooner we get it done the sooner we can reward ourselves with a tall cool one," admits Troken.
"'Didn't Wanna Know' and 'Anything Could Happen' I had laying around for a while but 'Hello My Old Friends' was basically written on the spot. Originally we tried to get it in the new Muppet movie but they didn't take it. Jesse Blum and Morgan played some amazing trumpet and trombone on 'Hello' and somewhere I have a photo of Morgan's mouth covered in blood after recording the Jews harp on 'Anything Could Happen.' What an animal!"
