Vinyl LP pressing including CD edition. Wingtip Sloat's slashing and arty post-punk sounds weirdly contemporary these days, so what better news than to have their first new music in almost twenty years! Purge And Swell is a 12-inch 45 RPM mini LP with ten new tracks, and is accompanied by a 76-minute bonus CD Lost Decade with thirty-one additional tracks. The 12-inch includes plenty of the trebly guitar blare and low-fi charm immediately familiar from the group's classic early '90s singles, backstopping winning and memorable tunes like "Stars Bailed Out" and "Gizzard Jett." The bonus CD includes bric-a-brac from the Sloat rehearsal room, with found poetry, perfect ninety-second rockers (the DC-specific "Cruisin' The Ellipse"), confusing instrumental detours, and winsome covers of Eno, Dylan, Wire, Belle & Sebastian and more.
