Jay Reatard Releases New Single, Does Radio K In-Studio Session
Download:Jay Reatard - "See/Saw"
Prolific garage-rock songster Jay Reatard is set to release a compilation of all the series of singles that he's released with Matador Records. The set is due on October 8th. And, in order to celebrate/give you a taste of what's to come, Matablog released an MP3 of "See Saw", which is not only the first track on the comp, but the first song ever released in the single series. If you've heard Jay before, then you know that "See Saw" is Jay at his most melodic and most concise.
However, as impressive as Jay may be in the studio, he's even more visceral live (so long as he hits-it-and-quits-it). To get a sense of what he's capable of, head on over to the Radio K, where Jay recently stopped by to record a session. Reatard played seven songs, and you can hear his work here.
Matador Singles 08 is out on October 8th.
