Six Organs of Admittance / William Tyler :: Parallelogram

For a decade-and-a-half, Cory Rayborn's Three Lobed label has been a reliable trademark of quality when it comes to adventurous underground sounds.

The Parallelogram series of split LPs brings together some of the leading lights of today's scene: we're talking about (deep breath) Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Six Organs of Admittance, William Tyler, Bardo Pond, Yo La Tengo, Thurston Moore/John Maloney, Bill Orcutt/Chris Corsano/Alan Bishop, Hiss Golden Messenger, Michael Chapman ... an embarrassment of riches, to say the least.
