Their upcoming Gmaj7 (limited to 300 vinyl copies via England's Mie Music is their first to feature percussion of any kind (relax, they're keeping their name), a swinging jazz-splurt from former U.S. Maple drummer Pat Samson. Fans of last weeks Horseback stream can rejoice in the Chatham-gone-splattum vibes of this "powerambient" gem, just glorious six minutes of its expansive 20-minute B-side.
