TRANSCENDING NOSTALGIA – Audio Karate
Audio Karate has reissued their sophomore record, ‘Lady Melody,’ on vinyl for the first time ever! Remastered by Jason Livermore (The Blasting Room), the limited pressing of 500—100 copies in classic black vinyl, 150 copies in tricolor splatter, and 250 in coke-bottle green— features reworked artwork and original handwritten lyrics.
‘Lady Melody’ has earned a cult following amongst musicians since its release in June 2004. A Day to Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon has called it one of the best records ever. It was recorded and mixed in two weeks in December 2003 at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado by Jason Livermore and Bill Stevenson (Descendents/All), with Stevenson often touting its single “Jesus Is Alive & Well (And Living in Mexico)” as possibly being his favorite thing he’s ever recorded.
