Rat Columns: Fooling Around 12"
First vinyl release of the definitive version of "Fooling Around," which appeared in truncated form on RAT COLUMNS' 2014 album Leaf (R.I.P. Society). Its void-chasing motoric and moody jangle evoke Splendour of Fear-era Felt or David Kilgour at his dreamiest, strapped to the engine of NEU!'s "Für Immer." "Living in the New World" summons Orange Juice or The Modern Lovers, but with a darker, more delirious edge; "Should I Leave You Alone?" closes with square-jawed dub-bass and chewy tape FX yielding to baroquely beautiful guitar phrasing and limpid Moog tone-float. Picture sleeve; includes insert and download code. Edition of 500.Tags: 10s melodic post-punk
