***Polvo returns with brand new music, on this limited-edition vinyl seveninch. Here the band offers artwork by In Prism’s Delicious Design League and music on “licorice-colored vinyl” that “might smell like baseball cards,” to borrow their own description. Recorded in North Carolina and mixed by Mitch Easter, “Heavy Detour” is taken from Polvo’s upcoming album, due this fall. Polvo formed in Chapel Hill, NC in 1990—a place and period known for its fertile indie scene. The band released two full-length albums and two EPs on Merge Records, plus two full-length albums for Touch and Go before disbanding in 1997. Polvo, joined this time by drummer BRIAN QUAST (CHERRY VALENCE), reformed in 2008 and released the critically acclaimed In Prism the following year. Includes a download with both tracks and a demo version of the B-side’s “Anchoress.” (STREET DATE - 7/26/2011)
