Preteen Zenith - Breathe (Record Store Day '012)

Saturday rapidly approaches, and with it comes the best invented holiday since Kwanzaa - Record Store Day!  Featuring limited releases from everyone from The Flaming Lips to Michael Buble, this is a can't miss event for music lovers, not to mention the raffles, in-store shows, and goody bags of free swag .  We'll have a full post tomorrow detailing the events and stores we're most excited to attend, but for now here's a preview of one of our most anticipated releases.

A 2000 LP limited-run marks the debut for Preteen Zenith, the new outfit from former-Tripping Daisy and current Polyphonic Spree frontman Tim DeLaughter.  I'm not sure what has me more convinced, my trust in Mr. DeLaughter's involvement or the 180 gram custom color swirl vinyl, but if the released tracks are any indication, it will be an impressive debut.  Check out "Breathe" which blends elements of the Spree at their most ambient and Tripping Daisy at their most lo-fi to a satisfying end, and come back tomorrow for more Record Store Day coverage.
