Yesterday the 12th edition of the K Singles Zip-Pak was transmitted to all you subscribers. It features two songs from an upcoming volume in our International Pop Underground series of 7″ releases, the Out of the Way EP [IPU133] by Western Hymn. Born last year in a cold, dark Olympia basement, Western Hymn is the uncouth union of two local thoroughbreds: the Old Haunts and Bangs. A classic three-piece stomping spooky riffs and thunderous hooves, Western Hymn digs on Northwest punk staples – reverb and rain, motorcycles and minivans. Craig Extine works the Hagstrom-hybrid, Sarah Utter switches her riffs from trusty guitar to bass guitar, and Kris Cunningham pounds the beat as only a native Nor’westerner can. With vocals that beg, exclaim and snarl, Western Hymn strikes up from underground.
This edition of the K Singles Zip-Pak features Special Apps not available on the Out of the Way EP, the song “Come Unchained” from their self-released debut album Western Hymn.
The Western Hymn Out of the Way EP [IPU133] will be available to the general public in March, but naturally we allow subscribers to the K Singles Zip-Pak first crack at it.
