The one and only R. STEVIE MOORE just dropped his millionth record on Sweaters & Pearls Records in Brooklyn, NY. It features two hand-picked songs from the man himself spanning his entire recording career.
The two tracks on this 7″ are separated by nearly sixteen years between each original release, the A-side being “I Missed July” from Moore’s 1987 album Games & Groceries. The track is driven by carefully plucked guitars for a hazy twang and Moore’s pitch-bent vocals, making for a folksy edge in the song as the thick and fat bass lines bubble underneath. The song splits off into a bouncy, western-tinged breakdown in the final minute, being only a small sample of what Moore is capable of. Lazy guitars lead the way in B-side track “I Traded My Heart for Your Parts”, where Moore makes catchy vocal hooks in his high-pitched and raspy croon. The track comes from his 1994 album Unpopular Singer Vol. 1 & 2 and it was recorded in Montclair, NJ. Hear both sides of the single below, then you can snag the 7″ directly from Sweaters & Pearls – it’s limited to 300 on red vinyl!
