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.

Pre-order “Golden Sparklers” b/w “Yearling’s Darlings and Academy Songs, Volume I via this [link]. Thanks so much for supporting independent music and art.
