The Walker / Back of Dave Split 7" was the first official vinyl release from Polyvinyl, who were then known as Polyvinyl Press -- a zine co-founded by Matt Lunsford & Darcie Knight that documented the local and midwest music scenes. This pre-dated the label's official transition to become Polyvinyl Record Co. with the release of Braid's Rainsnowmatch 7-inch, and the first formal release, the Direction compilation.
Diane Coffee - aka the pop alter-ego of Bloomington, IN musician Shaun Fleming - has transformed since we first encountered the experimental, shape-shifting project a few years ago. With his latest release, Fleming has pushed further into the pop realm, exploring themes of technology and the isolation of our increasingly digitized world through epically catchy and danceable songs. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to share a few tunes with us in this massively fun session!
Internet Arms is available now from Polyvinyl.
