Mr. Divisadero's Lost Album Streaming Online

(Crash Avenue) In what is being billed as almost a decade of waiting, Mr. Divisadero's long-lost, self-titled album has now seen the light of day courtesy of Axis Mundi Records who just released the album.

Here is the background we were sent about the band and the album: Mr. Divisadero does not exist, and they have not existed for nearly a decade. In early 2014, through the mystical forces of the universe, Bill Toce and Graham Dickson (Crystal Fighters), the co-founders of Axis Mundi, found themselves sharing a rehearsal space with a band called Workout.

One day they were digging through some boxes and came across an aggressively DIY-looking CD from a band called Mr. Divisadero, which they surmised was the previous project of their fellow tenants in Workout. After immediately falling in love with the album, they realized it never got a proper release, and got the blessing to put it out from Workout's Jack Killen.

So why is Axis Mundi releasing their album and expecting anyone to care? Quick answer is that they love it, and think it would be selfish not to share with the world. The album is dirty, loose, hectic and dark. The label considered asking Mr. D to re-record the album but then thought: Could Pure Guava or The Pod (Ween) be re-recorded and polished up a bit and sound fantastic? Yes. Would they love to hear it? Yes. But, would it be better? No, and that is the beauty of Mr. Divisadero.

The album is available for purchase on iTunes and you can stream it in full here.
