Fatso Jetson / del-Toros - RSD 2016 Split (TRANSPARENT YELLOW) (7 INCH)
Limited run split with Fatso Jetson and just about anybody would be a pretty easy sell, but they do pair surprisingly well with Dutch heavy surfers del-Toros, whose inclusion, “Die Cast,” starts out with a dice roll and comes topped with samples and reverb in kind. That’s over on the B-side, where on the front end, Fatso Jetson present “Dream Homes,” the organ-laced instrumental that could also recently be found closing off their album, Idle Hands. Since both tracks are instrumental — those samples notwithstanding — the 11-minute outing feels like it’s over even quicker than that, but each band uses their time wisely in the pursuit of their own brand of heavy rock, and if nothing else, the release reminds of how close the desert and the ocean’s waves can sometimes feel.
Limited run of 655, hand numbered.
