Fort Lowell Records are reviving yet another concept from the days of yore: a split 7 inch double A-side single. LA based girl-group Wet & Reckless have contributed a rambling garage track about a New Guy, that sounds like a Maureen Tucker post-VU outing, albeit with better vocals. The new guy means trouble for the band, just like the old guys did before, but it might be a new kind of trouble worth pursuing. Singer=songwriter Tracy Shedd unveils Tear It Up, a soft-spoken song that packs a punch: “Will you go out on the dance floor and tear it up for me?” she asks. Kramer of Butthole Surfers and Galaxie 500 fame, mixed and mastered the track. He did a fine job balancing guest musician Kane Flint's mandolin and Shedd's guitar.
Wet & Reckless + Tracy Shedd: "“New Guy" b/w “Tear It Up" is released by Fort Lowell Records on 7 inch red vinyl, limited to 500 copies. Comes with a digital download card.
