Spectre Folk - "The Blackest Medicine" (Blackest Medicine Vol 2) Woodsist 2011

I was finally able to get my hands on Spectre Folk's new 12" "The Blackest Medicine Vol. 2" last week, and it was well worth the wait. Spectre Folk is the pet project of Magik Markers dude Pete Nolan. "Blackest Medicine Vol 2" is a beautiful collection of hazy folk/psych jams that fits perfectly into the Woodsist catalog. Nolan assembled an amazing group of musicians for his latest release, including Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) on drums, Pete Meehan (The Grey Lady) on guitar, and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) on bass.

Magik Markers' Elisa Amborgio has this to say about the record:
"The band entered Echo Canyon West with the intention of recording a 7-inch of the up-tempo version of “The Blackest Medicine,” the title cut from the 2007 home-fi Woodsist debut. After several sessions, they emerged with a four-song studio collage monster that won’t fit in your locker and smells like smoked banana peels and undies blowing down an alleyway. A vibraphone, piano, and a plate reverb unit the size of a Brooklyn apartment were all employed by the Spectre like Uri Gellar used spoons—inappropriately, desperate and bent."

Check out the tune below, and then head over to Woodsist to order the record.
