Riff-rolling Connecticut trio Curse the Son released their third full-length earlier this year on CD via Snake Charmer Coalition, and if you haven’t heard it, Isolator (review here), is about as right on in tone and vibe as anything I’ve heard come from the US this year. Curse the Son don’t really tour — they have some local shows coming up in New England, listed below — so they continue to be under-recognized, but since the CD/DL version came out (also sold out; repress reportedly on the way), word of an Isolator vinyl has been kicked around, and it seems like today we’re getting some solid info on the actual plan.
Originally set to come out through STB, which also did the LP edition of Curse the Son‘s prior outing, Psychache (review here), the Isolator vinyl will now see release via The Company Records in two versions, red wax and white wax with an included tape. Both are limited numbers. STB explained the situation, and you’ll find that below along with the pressing info, tracklisting, those live dates, and the stream of the album from Curse the Son‘s Bandcamp, in case you’d like a refresher of its badassery.
Have at you:
A lot of people have been asking me about the Curse the Son “Isolator” Release. Josh from The Company Records was kind enough to take some of the stress of my hands lately. He will be releasing this beast, almost like a sister label to STB Records.
Curse The Son, STB Records, and The Company are all on excellent terms and every party in the equation is really happy! You will be getting the same quality and service you would expect from myself because Josh has been working with me on ALL of my releases for 2 years now. So please support this new DIY effort that will be coming out of the gates swinging.
