It is a HeartFirst Records tradition to release records by bands from Canada and Texas, not the rest of the states (not counting some very early releases in the early 90s). So HeartFirst proudly presents a new 6 song EP by VAASKA from Texas. They come from the vibrant Austin scene and feature members from other more or less known bands which I will not mention here. After two 12"s on Todo Destruido and 540 records this is their first 7" EP and on here they have taken a slightly new direction, away from the early raw sound. This 7" has it all, great power, hooks and vocals in Spanish. This 7"s features 6 hits clocking in at just under 10 minutes. Recorded again by Hanz Zimmerman, Mastered by Jack Control and packaged in gloomy artwork by Brian Miller. Besides the lyric insert this EP comes with a double sided silk screened inner sleeve printed by the Big Double Os. The 2nd pressing is available now (red ink) and it does not stink as much as the first version (blue ink). VAASKA are currently writing songs for a split 7" with SKIZOPHRENIA from Japan to be released in the summer of 2013.
