The first Winks release featured recordings from old tapes in a shoddy karaoke player. Chase and Adam recorded their second album this summer, which was produced by their friend Ben who has a new studio set up in the Annex. Ben records everything straight to tape and is also responsible for two tracks on the forthcoming Strange Cultures LP, and a killer upcoming Microkingdom cassette.
"CORBS" will be the first track on the new Winks album. It sounds like Chase wrote it after watching Cruising while skipping his post-apocalyptic high school prom in 1983. This my friends, is a good thing, and is really only a taste of what's to come.
The full release will be called She's Done, and will feature recent live set staples like "Animal" and "She Cums in Colors". It's going to be released this Fall by Friends Records. More new sounds from Winks are in the wing, and don't forget to check out Chase's other band, INEVERYROOM, tonight at Sonar.
