Arguably not for the casual Mudhoney fan, this single will appeal to the Mudhoney completist we should all aspire to become. Up for pre-order at SubPop.com. (at Sub Pop HQ)
“New World Charm” was recorded during the Vanishing Point sessions. The B-sides are “Swimming in Beer” and “The Swimming in Beer Blues,” different versions of the theme song Mudhoney wrote for the short-lived Discovery Channel series Brew Masters. Out May 7. (More info here.)
Hey Gits Fans! The re-issue of Second Skin/Social Love is being released today! I have a busy day ahead of me due to many activities, but I will do my best to start sending them out tomorrow first thing. I have even made some brand new Gits stickers to send out with the singles!

L7 - Everglade 12”
Another L7 single I bought because my Bricks are Heavy album is in such poor condition. This is a single-sided 12” single with an awesome etched second side.
I’m glad I bought this because of the non-album track Freak Magnet that I’d never heard before.
Listen to “Freak Magnet”.
Can we just talk about how scratched into one side of my Vanishing Point LP is “Why are you looking here?” And the other side says “The joke is in your hands.”
Mudhoney: always good for out-of-context bathroom-graffiti humor.
