On Record Store Day, Yeasayer released the limited End Blood 7″, comprised of the following two tracks that didn’t find a place on their grand 2010 album, Odd Blood. Upon listening to both “Phoenix Wind” and “Swallowing The Decibels”, that they come from the same recording sessions is obvious. Though the fact that these tracks are standout efforts, easily placed alongside some of the best songs on Odd Blood, makes me really wonder why they weren’t included. It’s even more disappointing that I didn’t snag a phsical copy.
