PO: Mikal Cronin - MCII

Recommended Posts

phpThumb_cache_mergerecords.com_src172c6
 
 Mikal Cronin’s Merge debut, MCII, will be released on May 7.
 
Mikal's self-titled debut from 2011 was all about endings: the end of college, the end of a serious relationship, and the end of his time in Los Angeles, where he grew up. So it’s no surprise that his sophomore release MCII is all about new beginnings.
 
“Since the first record came out, my life has changed quite a bit,” Cronin says, referencing his move to San Francisco and tours with Ty Segall as well as with his own band. 
 
Recorded in late 2012 in San Francisco, (except for “Don’t Let Me Go” which was recorded by Cronin at home), MCII features several guest appearances, including Ty Segall. Other than the guest appearances, Cronin played all of the instruments. “It all makes total sense to me, but when I step back, it sounds kind of schizophrenic,” Cronin says. “Hopefully it all sounds enough like me to make sense.”
 
For an additional $10, a limited edition tie-dye Merge Records t-shirt is available with purchase of CD or LP. T-shirts will ship with preorders.
 
LPs include a coupon for full download. LP preorders will include a free Merge Records slipmat and all preorders will include a poster. Preorders will ship to arrive on or around the release date of May 7.

thanks for the npr link. I liked his other releases, but this LP is awesome. Will definitely be picking this up when it drops (next week?)

 

Oh yeah, and i got one of those free slipmats the other day at the shop in town, it's pretty cool looking actually:
