Normally I wouldn’t make a post about one release coming into the store, but this one is pretty damn special. This is the first release from our friends over at Valley King Records/Secret Serpents in San Francisco, and what better way to start it all off with a 7″ from Sweet Apple!
Sweet Apple is a new band consisting of members of Dinosaur Jr, Cobra Verde, Witch, and Guided By Voices. Each 7″ comes with a silkscreened cover that is signed and numbered by artist Alan Forbes. Included with each record is a silkscreened mini art print based on the cover art, and a foil Secret Serpents Sticker (also designed by Alan Forbes)! This is a very limited pressing of 500 and won’t be repressed, so don’t procrastinate!
