This Week In Music Geek

Umlaut loves 7" singles. Loves. Them.

Recently, the hot shit new English punk band Gallows unleashed their new single 'Abandon Ship' in 3 different versions: CD single, black vinyl 7" single (B-Side = a cover of Black Flag's 'Nervous Breakdown'), AND a one-sided 7" single with one side etched.

Ohmigod, the one-sided 7" single with the etching is one of the most beautiful Music Geek things I've ever seen:

Is it possible for a man to love a 7" inch piece of vinyl from England? Yes. Yes it is.
