Wild Kindness Records to Help with Holopaw 7″  

Posted at 12:55 pm

Well over a year ago, Grandma Misra began speaking with David Pokrivnak – the visionary behind the newly-launched, Youngstown-based Wild Kindness Records. Pokrivnak had helped out at legendary K Records for a good spell. A designer by trade, DP possesses a true talent for the visual end of running a record label. Grandma and David began chatting and collaborating and supporting one another in their mutual endeavors.

Among other items, this resulted in David helping with design for the early 2012 reissue of Shearwater’s Winged Life and Misra manager Leo DeLuca writing the press release and facilitating Black Swans & Southeast Engine tracks to Wild Kindness’ Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit for GEMS. Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS) is a New York-based organization designed to serve females, ages 12-24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.

Now, the time has come for Misra and Wild Kindness to do a joint release proper. Holopaw’s “Golden Sparklers” b/w “Yearling’s Darlings,” a 500-run limited 7″, will arrive November 13 via Misra/WK.

“Golden Sparklers” is the lead-off single via Paw’s forthcoming Academy Songs, Volume I (Misra; January 15, 2013) and it is absolutely breathtaking. The track recently premiered on Pitchfork and you can head [here] to hear.

Pitchfork Premieres Holopaw Single  

Posted at 9:34 am

Pitchfork premiered Holopaw’s “Golden Sparklers” today. Thanks so much to Larry, Jenn & all at P4K. How wonderful.

“Golden Sparklers” is the leadoff single from Academy Songs, Volume I (release: 1/15). Set in the close quarters of an all-boys preparatory academy and the world beyond its “ivied walls,” Holopaw have crafted a truly magnificent album. To note: the LP & CD covers are two different photographs.

“Golden Sparklers” is also the A-Side of the very limited, hand-numbered “Golden Sparklers” b/w “Yearling’s Darlings” 7″ (release: 11/13). Our dear friends at Wild Kindness Records will aid in the release of the 7″. The full-length will be solely a Misra endeavor.

>> Pre-order both here. Thanks so much for supporting independent art & music!
