Bridgetown #85

Kevin Greenspon + Nicole Kidman
Already Dead

After years in the works, these two best friends team up once again for a new collaborative record of sugary sweet pop punk anthems that are instantly catchy and relatable to anyone who has felt young at least once in their life. For their second collaborative record, Kevin Greenspon and Jon Barba aka Nicole Kidman contribute sincere, heartbreaking and intimately personal songs of foolish love backed by the simple beauty of a busted keyboard, blown out drum machine and raw guitar fuzz. Greenspon's guitarwork has been stripped down from the thicker shoegaze on his prior split CD with Cloud Nothings to complement the trademark Yamaha tones and frantic beats Nicole Kidman has made a name for himself with.

Bridgetown's first vinyl release captures the duo's finest moments together from several years of writing and were recorded in such varied settings as a poolhouse the two formerly ran a venue in (see video above), a dusty woodshop in Oakland, and even on a junked television set. "Already Dead" includes 4 exclusive songs and crowd favorites that fans will recognize from their tours together such as "Thirst For God" plus 8 more bonus songs in the included download.
