Free Download: Vapour Trail (Ride cover)

Jay Breitling runs the fantastic Clicky Clicky Music Blog. This month Jay curated a wonderful compilation album featuring Boston bands covering the album Nowhere by Ride which is available as a free download. Midriff artists Eldridge Rodriguez and Greg Lyon both contributed tracks to the album, and Lyon designed the artwork. It’s a really fun release that will excite fans of Ride as well as fans of the participating bands. Jay guest posts this week and introduces our latest free downloadable single, only available here at Midriff Records.

In case you missed it, Nofuckingwhere featured 11 Boston bands performing the 11 songs from RIDE’s 1990 classic shoegaze album Nowhere. We added the fucking. Judge not lest you be judged.
