No sooner did I get the post together about the Thrill Jockey 7″ Boxset and Pitchfork gets the scoop on the set details. They also have a sample of the Sea and Cake cover of Califone.
Contrary to what the TJ site says currently, there will be 18 songs and 9 records. It will be released on December 4th in the U.S. (3rd in the UK).
Other news from Pitchfork is that there will be a US show similar to the UK anniversary event in Chicago “sometime in December.” Hopefully this means that they will have the Girl Talk/Trey Told ‘Em remix CD at that show!
