Air Miami - Me. Me. Me. 2LP (Orange & Blue Vinyl)
90s 4AD band Air Miami's debut album gets a long overdue repress! Remastered from the original analogue tapes by Pete Weiss, this new deluxe edition pulls together all of the album session tracks for the first time, spreading 16 tracks (3 new to the album) over two LPs: "Warm Miami May" (not on original LP), "Pucker" (previously unreleased), and the full version of "See-Through Plastic" (edited version only previously seen on the Fuck You, Tiger EP). The record also features the singles "I Hate Milk" and "Seabird," a track that found new life recently when covered by current 4AD artist Maria Somerville. Pressed on Floridian-inspired colored vinyl and cut at 45rpm, the package is completed with a new gatefold sleeve design with Hideaki Kodama's stunning ‘Girl B 1988' photo still adorning the cover.
Made up of Unrest's Mark Robinson and Bridget Cross, Air Miami formed shortly after the D.C. indie rock mainstay's demise in 1995, and together with drummer Gabriel Stout and producer Guy Fixsen (The Breeders, My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab), they travelled to their namesake land of Miami to record the entirety of Me. Me. Me. over the month of May at the famed Criteria Studios; a place where James Brown, Aretha Franklin, the Bee Gees, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC and countless more have recorded classic works. The album was then mixed at a studio in London where labelmates Lush were recording their 1996 LP Lovelife at the same time.
