Track Listing: Plumerai “Vacant Eyes”. The Brother Kite “We Can Never Be Friends”. LIMITED to 500 copies. Clear vinyl in see-thru package. An idea hatched during the recording of Plumerai’s “Without Number” CD out on Silber Records. The thought was to strip away the pedals and even electricity and release a record that would simultaneously draw upon the band’s ability to evoke emotions and utilize one of the band’s noted strengths; the intimacy and power of Elizabeth Ezell’s voice. After consideration they sought out The Brother Kite to record a track for the flipside. A Clairecords staple and another top-notch New England band known for their shoegaze influences, they seemed like a perfect match for the concept of stripping down their sound and writing an acoustic track.. Plumerai’s “Vacant Eyes” relies more heavily on orchestration and layering of instruments such as acoustic guitar, reed organ, violin (arranged and performed by Clara Kebabian) and bells to accompany Ezell. While The Brother Kite’s “We Can Never Be Friends” is a more basic track with acoustic guitars and a catchy vocal melody carrying the song. This stunning and beautiful record comes on coke bottle-clear vinyl and is limited to 500 copies. "Do credit (Plumerai's) Elizabeth Ezell for killing herself softly with this song. Her voice breaks gently on each syllable, creating a strange and soulful vibrato that communicates her anguish easily and gracefully, not unlike Karen O ripping her heart out, ballad-style."
