Coming 12/3 : A Lower-Than-Low Priced Compilation LP Of Matador 2013 Highlights

By Gerard on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

OK, we missed Black Friday by a few days, but if that means ONE LESS TRAMPLING this holiday shopping season, it was totally worth it.  On December 3, we’re releasing a limited edition, one-time pressing of a $5.99 list LP , ‘It’s Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You‘, featuring 9 songs from (most of) our 2013 releases. In addition to album tracks from Chelsea Light Moving, Majical Cloudz, Body/Head, Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, Iceage and Kurt Vile, there’s a live version of Queens of the Stone Age performing “If I Had A Tail” at the 2013 iTunes Festival (Roundhouse, London),  Savages’ “City’s Full” from last summer’s KEXP session, and Yo La Tengo performing “Before We Run” in those same KEXP studios.

We don’t have any copies for mail order, sadly, but hopefully you’ll find one at your favorite record store after they’re done sweeping up all the broken glass, blood, etc. from Black Friday.  If you prefer, you can order a digital version of the comp. right now at the Matador Store.
