Full Description

Freakwater's first Bloodshot Records release!

Side A is "The Asp and the Albatross," from their Bloodshot debut Scheherazade. The song, with it’s languid Southern Cal vibe, might lull the listener with visions of gentle breezes and snow white hammocks. But listen deeper and the tension rises with the jagged fiddle of Warren Ellis (Dirty Three, Nick Cave) and the imagery of loss, of Cleopatra and the Ancient Mariner. Pure Freakwater.

Side B is an exclusive B-side, a languid, dreamy platonic meditation that might have been conjured deep in a Kentucky limestone cave.

Limited edition of 500 copies.

Short Description
  • It's a formidable return...[The song is] bathed in folkish guitars and light vocals to emanate a warm and homey sound.
