Five Three Dial Tone has a knack for coming up with creative ways to distribute Detroit music. Their latest edition of the Disarm The Settlers series has 300 copies pressed on red vinyl. “50 of those will have hand-collaged center labels and come in limited edition sleeves — 25 with mock “Heart-Shaped Box” artwork for the release show and 25 with mock Sliver artwork for e-mail list subscribers.” Pretty awesome, eh?
On Disarm The Settlers Vol. II, two up and coming Detroit acts tackle a couple classic Nirvana tracks. As if “Heart-Shaped Box” couldn’t get any creepier, Phantasmagoria adds some haunting synth to the mix. The B-side “Sliver”, reworked by Coyote Clean-Up still has the catchy hook of the original, but is tranformed into an electronic head nodder. Stream “Heart-Shaped Box” below and order Disarm The Settlers Vol. II here.
The release show will be on Saturday, April 28th at The New Dodge in Hamtramck, MI, with live performances by Coyote Clean Up, Phantasmagoria, Glossies and The Vatican.
