windings

The Space I Occupy/ The Hassle” is the new double A-sided 7” Single from windings, on Out On A Limb Records. Contained within this new release are two very different sides of the always eclectic windings, one part paranoid cowbell boppin’ rant, and the other, an existential lament complete with kids’ choir. Both songs show the band flexing their musical muscles in ways they have perhaps refrained from thus far.
