February Records and Popular Wallpaper Recordings announce the co-release of a limited-edition 7” vinyl single, “Paw Meds/Mary, All The Time” (FEB012/PWR008), from Hartford, Conn., psych-pop outfit, The Inclined Plane.
The Inclined Plane continues to believe that age-old diet of vacuum tubes and mondegreens is the secret to writing classic psych-pop. Their lo-fi carousel of catchy hooks and melodic fun is a dizzy joyride spinning on the circle of fifths. From noisy ’60s psychedelia and harmony-rich folk, to kraut drones and detuned ’90s guitar jangles, a carefully-selected rack of spices finds its way into The Inclined Plane’s confections.
They have self-released three EPs — “Gestalt Pump” (2006), “The Bit Intuit” (2007) and “Nonpareils” (2007) — each in limited runs in handmade packaging (featuring the artwork of John Tieman) on their own Popular Wallpaper Recordings label. In 2009 came the proper full-length, “I Am Pants,” which found them expanding their songwriting palette and distilling their unique brand of ambitious home recording into 10 golden, mixtape-ready pop singles. Now comes the “Paw Meds/Mary, All the Time” 7-inch single. Co-released with Popular Wallpaper Recordings, this hand-numbered, limited-run of 200 records contains two more brand new reverb-soaked nuggets.
