When Vagrant Beat started playing music in Athens, the first band from the community that we were instantly fascinated by was Zapaño. They were still strangers to us then, but we could sense an inevitable kinship. Their music, dense and often eccentric, made it a point to defy the boundaries of genre. We were inspired to find another group so open to experimentation, and with such an enthusiasm for performance.
We’re proud to say that Zapaño have since become good friends of ours, and this collaboration is one we’ve been discussing for a long time. It’s been a dream to see our music pressed to vinyl, and given the treatment it deserves in full analog sound. Side A will feature two songs from Vagrant Beat that are informed by 90’s noise rock and post-hardcore. Side B will present a song (or mini-opus if you will...) by Zapaño that finds them exercising their love of bizarre jazz and progressive rock.
Unfortunately, doing a vinyl release is substantial in cost. We need your help to see this project realized! It’s our promise that no details have or will be overlooked—from the recordings to the final product you hold in your hands. Some great rewards are being offered for all levels of contribution. Thank you so much for your support. It keeps us loud!
