Portastatic Sour Shores EP Next Week!


the new Portastatic album comes out October 10th and is called Be Still Please, but there will be a preview made commercially available next week when an EP is released digitally, that's right, all the internets will be carrying it, and the tracklisting will be thus:

1. Sour Shores
2. And I Was A Boy From School
3. Portraits From Before the War
4. Sour Shores (acoustic demo)

the first track is the album version, track 2 is an acoustic cover of the great Hot Chip song, track 3 was recorded at the time of Bright Ideas but for whatever reason didn't fit with the rest of those songs (i remember -- it was too FANTASTIC! so you should probably get it now), and track 4 is the demo for the title track of the EP...
the EP will be available from from all your favorite online sources (iTunes, emusic, et al) as well as directly from the Merge site!

Will there ever be a day when Portastatic or Superchunk releases a version of "Thunder Road" as a b-side?
