Since the release of their album Game in 2007, Brooklyn's Aa have been sharing the stage with bands such as Health, Lucky Dragons, Zs, and No Age, as well as having played in the Boredom's 77 drummer event Boadrum in New York. The band has also done remixes for Asobi Seksu, Foot Village, and Miki Furukawa. Usually more active as performers than recording artists, Aa has decided to expedite their recorded output to the post-album era by presenting a series of shorter 45 Rpm 12" releases where both the art & music are designed to emphasize the tactile, art object quality of the vinyl record while taking advantage of the superior audio fidelity of a short duration 12" at 45 Rpm (the format of choice for dance music singles). Glossy is the first of this series and contains one song per side: Glow Wreath (Side A) and Mossy (Side B) are given extended studio treatments and illustrate Aa's commitment to continuing as a never-ending rhythm experiment. Glossy is also released in celebration of the band's first European tour and appearance at the Mem Festival in Bilbao, Spain. Production & mixing were handled by Bill Pavone (Les Savy Fav, Dragons of Zynth). Mastered at Bonati Mastering NYC. Download codes for both songs are included in the package. Cover art by Aron Wahl.
