As space travelers already know, Dan Higgs, mystic guru of the psych-punk legends Lungfish, joined The Skull Defekts to provide heavily bearded vocals for their most recent tour. Fellow Lungfish member Asa Osborne opened many of the shows with his ecstatic Casio-drone solo project, Zomes. But the magic didn’t stop there! The two Dischord vets joined Skull Defekts for a one-day recording session and came out with three collaborative tunes to press on vinyl—-both backward and forward. The new record, 2013-3012, features an A-side with three new, tripped-out tracks and a B-side that plays the songs in reverse. No digital previews are out just yet, but Thrill Jockey drops the vinyl on November 8. Track list follows.
