Deerhoof / Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog
Limited edition split 7” (1,000 copies)
Available ONLY at Record Store Day on April 19th



“A split 7″ deserves a split write-up. So, Northern Spy asked Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier and Ceramic Dog’s Marc Ribot to write something about this record. Turns out there’s some mutual respect here. I guess it’d be weird if there wasn’t.”

Chris Cohen is a 37-year-old native of Los Angeles currently residing in the farmlands of Vermont. He is the child of a former music business executive and a former Broadway actress. His resumé of prior musical projects is a long one: as a contributing member of The Curtains, Cryptacize, Deerhoof, and Natural Dreamers, he released 10 full-length albums between 2002 and 2008. Along the way, Cohen was also a touring player with White Magic, Cass McCombs, Haunted Graffiti and Danielson, among others, for stints both short and long. All of this has culminated in his first release under his own name, and his first for Captured Tracks, Overgrown Path. –Captured Tracks

Tradi-Mods vs. Rockers : Alternative Takes on Congotronics

The Congotronics series has spawned a fervent following in the world of indie rock and electronic music… and now that world answers back in musical form. Crammed has asked a carefully chosen list of musicians (including Animal Collective, Deerhoof, Andrew Bird and many more) to come up with their own personal take on Congotronics. The result is this epic double album, consisting of 26 brand-new tracks from a wild mix of artists. They include covers, reworks and original compositions inspired by the electrifying sounds of Konono N°1, Kasai Allstars and other bands who play electrified traditional music (also known as “tradi-modern”).   (Crammed Discs)
