A wonderful companion piece to the totemic Fed, Be With Records presents the first ever vinyl edition of Liam Hayes' magical fourth LP Korp Sole Roller, previously only available on a rare Japanese import CD. As ever with Hayes and Plush, it's easy to imagine you are listening to a privately pressed rarity from the mid-late '70s. Or one of the criminally neglected jewels from the discography of Jimmy Webb or Burt Bacharach. Produced/arranged in 2010 by Pat Sansone (Wilco, The Autumn Defense), the sound on Korp Sole Roller does differ crucially from Fed, however. It's more streamlined. These 10 gorgeously seductive creations careen around ornate string and wind instrument arrangements, yet, brilliantly still possesses that sun-warped take on classic pop-rock, that Plush specialized in. That peculiar "down-lifting" phenomenon of performing upbeat songs in an enigmatically mournful way.
Upon completion, Korp Sole Roller barely received anything resembling a release. Press coverage was zero because none of the major magazines or blogs knew of its existence. His management at the time essentially buried the album in order to concentrate on other releases. Looking back on this decision, it really made little sense. Everyone involved in its creation of these near-perfect gems is extremely proud of it. Liam himself has described it as his favorite album. Remastered especially for this special vinyl pressing, it is presented in a sumptuous gatefold jacket with high-end art photography throughout, including full color inner sleeves. Finally, here's your chance to own a slice of kaleidoscopic pop history!
