New The Long Winters songs find their way to the world. For example through this split single for the Mt. Fuji label, with Spiral Stairs, aka Scott Kannberg of Pavement and Preston School of Industry fame.
Mt. Fuji label head Michael Jaworski was the genius behind getting both acts coming together for a collaborative release and the result is a double A-side, split single featuring Spiral’s contribution “Dreams They Guide Us” and The Long Winters song “Connections in Nashville.” The Spiral Stairs contribution is a leftover B-side from his recent Matador Records release “The Real Feel” while The Long Winters song will feature on the new album. As always with The Long Winters, only time will tell if this split single version will be the one ending up on an album, so it could become a collector’s item.
