Jackson-based FURROWS released their second LP last week, and to celebrate, the mighty HISS LAB released a cassingle in their honor. It contained two songs not on the record—lovely re-recordings of “Anesthesia” and “Bridgeburner.”

You can check out the Furrows at their Bandcamp page or order their new record at Elegant Trainwreck. Hiss Lab cassettes are $5—for two great songs & two great pieces of art! Snag one at the next FURROWS show.

Out of the limited edition of 30, here’s the first ten, along with examples of what the total package looked like.

All photos are Polaroid 600 film except for the ones which are 669 through a 420 Land Camera, you can totally tell those apart.
