Portuguese edition, and the b-side Ain't Goin' Nowhere was titled incorrectly, but I included it in the download because it's a different much muddier mix.

Seattle Syndrome Volume One, I posted awhile back. This one's even better than the first one, chock full of outstanding tunes. Minimal synths, post punks, new waves, power pops, weird otherness. My record is fairly beat up, probably because it was once a radio station copy, though it's fun being able to read the descriptions and comments left in pen by the DJs back in the day. I included a better pic of the back cover, and the record sleeve that has lots of info about the bands. This is one you don't want to overlook!

I first heard these guys (and gal) on The Up Another Octave Transmission comp. Where they have a great standout track, on a comp full of great tunes. Then I recently came across this 12" and picked it up on the strength of that song "China Sleeping". The b-side "He Waiting" delivers the same kind of spastic art damaged punk-wave fun, reminding me Vancouver's AKA and their Red Therapy EP. "Arabian Reggae" is a nice dose of weirdo reggae. Inserts with lyrics included!
