Polvo releasing new 7” single

According to Merge Records:
On July 26, Polvo returns with brand-new music on their “Heavy Detour b/w “Anchoress” limited-edition 7-inch. Preorder your vinyl copy in the Merge store now and receive a demo version of “Anchoress” as a bonus!

Here the band offers artwork by In Prism’s Delicious Design League and music on “licorice-colored vinyl” that “might smell like baseball cards,” to borrow their own description. Recorded in North Carolina and mixed by Mitch Easter, “Heavy Detour” is taken from Polvo’s upcoming album.
Though I can’t find any info on what Polvo’s “upcoming album” is, I’m excited to hear that they’re up to something new again. Hopefully a NYC performance is forthcoming, but for now, the band’s only scheduled dates are in Europe, which you can see below…
