TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Blood Red Shoes, 10″ EP “Water” on red vinyl

“Vinyl has always been really important in Blood Red Shoes. When we started the band, the first thing we did was release a string of self-recorded limited 7″s, and since then we’ve made sure every release has a vinyl version.”

“In fact increasingly, we’re not even doing a CD version, just a download and vinyl of our releases. I guess it’s always been important to us because coming from an underground scene, vinyl was always prized the highest. I have fond memories of buying my first Fugazi LPs (which were really cheap) in Brighton indie shops, and every band aspired to releasing a 7” or LP, not a download or CD or whatever.

Vinyl always just seemed that bit more “real,” maybe it’s something about taking it out the sleeve, lifting the needle yourself, having to turn it over halfway through…it’s a more engaging process to listen to, rather than just clicking on a screen and letting it go.”
Steven Ansell

UK’s Blood Red Shoes, the pairing of guitarist Laura-Mary Carter and drummer Steven Ansell, embark on a string of dates this year with The Joy Formidable, and have released the brand new 10″ EP entitled “Water” on blood-red vinyl. (Nice touch, huh?)

Limited to a pressing of just 500, the EP is only available in the UK—but we’ve gotten a hold of one to give away to those of you who live in the States.
