Kermes - 2018 Sessions AMP008



here's three songs that we recorded back in 2018! all of these tracks have been available online but never in the same place, and this will be their first time on the major streaming services as well.

"Pedestrian at Best" is a cover of the Courtney Barnett song - we tracked this live in the studio and then overdubbed the shit out of it. it was originally released on a covers comp for Salvage Collective back in october 2018 but hasn't been available anywhere else.

"Boyfriend" and "Time to Shut Him Up" are from our "We Choose Pretty Names" LP, and these versions were recorded entirely live in the studio the morning after the release show for the album. both were originally only released as a youtube video (watch:

the cover photo was shot by our dear friend robin hardman at a recording session last year. you can follow more of his work at @oicester on instagram.

more to come soon, thankyou for being a friend
