about



Two long years after the release of the first out of four »Green Corridor« Vinyl 12"s on Altin Village & Mine, the second part brings together two undoubted musical geniuses. Right on time for the european tours of Jamie Stewart aka Xiu Xiu and Chad VanGaalen, this little treasure will be displayed on the merch tables. In the end all four parts of this vinyl series will add up to one piece of art, musically and graphically.

Chad provides nine exclusive tracks, recorded at his own studio in Calgary, which perfectly present the uniqueness and complexity of his music. The unpretentious giant’s songwriting skills leave behind the genres, and is it that »I Want You Back« is his best song after all?

Xiu Xiu’s tireless output now culminate in a collage, in which he explores the medium’s boundaries, by integrating the listener into his art. The listener’s supposed to read a question, to then put the needle onto the vinyl which provides the respective answer. One question is »Is it okay to scratch up this record?«, and we can assure you: It’s not!
