Cold War Kids have given their fans an early Christmas present over at Coldwarkids.rcrdlbl.com: Mulberry Street, an out-of-print EP recorded before their debut full-length Robbers & Cowards.
"[Mulberry Street] was recorded in a day in M Wignall's garage/studio for some design job favors from (bassist Matt) Maust and 60 bucks," frontman Nathan Willett said in a statement. "In between takes, Wignall would play an album over the speakers, like Iggy Pop's Lust For Life or Neil Young's After the Gold Rush, and go on long rants, pointing out sounds and talking about how good these musicians were and how we would be lucky if in 10 years we could play a song anywhere near this good. We thought 'Who cares! We just want to record our songs for us!' Then he showed us how to record vocals while he went to mow the lawn."
