"'Fans of the lengthy psych of Bardo Pond, the noise jams of Fushitsushsa, the yawning drones of Pelt-- will admire their refusal to sacrifice peaks in order to avoid valleys.' - Pitchfork The always prolific Matt Valentine and Erika Elder are back at it with the debut 7-inch on Electric Temple Records, Sweetheart of the Nascar. Rising from the depths of the grass-roots, free-riding psychedelic underground, MV&EE provide the nighttime companion over two midnight-oil burning tracks to their recent masterwork for Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label, Barn Nova. The A-Side titletrack, 'Sweetheart of the Nascar' is perhaps one of the duo's heaviest tracks to date, pushing the threshold of Rust Never Sleeps-era Neil Young into sludge metal meets Mark Hollis ambience. The b-side, 'Crow Jane Variations' is a slow-burner featuring Erika Elder's reverb-drenched echoes behind a wash of lap-steel guitar and minor-key rustic psychedelic vibes. Sweetheart of The Nascar was recorded with Matt Valentine's mind-boggling production technique, Spectrasound. The Spectre Sound engineering was done by James Anderson, while the final mix was done by long-time producer/engineer Justin at Barn Row Studios and Matt Valentine himself at their home studio, Maximum Arousal Farm. The inventive technique is highlighted on 'Sweetheart of the Nascar' with two drummers playing - one in the left channel, one in the right, spread across a gorgeous stereo-pan." On brown-colored vinyl.
