Giants’ self-titled 7” showed up today! For the unfamiliar, Giants play very passionate post-rock in the same vein as Explosions In The Sky. Their two full-length albums feature much stronger material than what’s featured on this 7”. But it’s beautiful, fun music none-the-less.
EDIT - I should mention that this is their first demo. Originally written in 2005, they re-recorded the material at the end of last year for the vinyl treatment.
PRE-ORDER: Giants’ self-titled debut EP from Mylene Sheath. On 3 colors: olive green (/100), opaque maroon (/100), or transparent gold (/300).
FFO: Explosions In The Sky, Caspian, instrumental rock, etc.

My copies of this split 7” finally arrived from Mylene Sheath. I’ve been looking forward to spinning these for months. Both Giants and Beware Of Safety are criminally underrated in the rapidly expanding circle of instrumental/post-rock bands. Both bands have an incredible knack for inserting hooks into otherwise un-pop-like music. If you’re already a fan of Giants, their track will be familiar territory. But BoS’ track on this split is a departure from their usual sound, instead exploring a trippier, more Pink Floyd like vibe. I’m in love with it.
The covers for these were printed by the always awesome Charlie Wagers. What’s really special about them is that they glow in the dark! Hot damn:
Mylene Sheath still has copies of the 7” available on Blue and Green. Each are limited to 200 copies. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and spend the $1.98 on Itunes for 11 minutes and 43 seconds of incredible music.
Giants - With Chakotay At The Helm… on Itunes
Beware Of Safety - Cut Into Stars on Itunes
The long awaited split 7” featuring brand new songs by GIANTS and BEWARE OF SAFETY. This is the first new material by either band in over two years… and it was so freakin’ worth the wait! One song by each band, both tracks were mastered by Jeff Reeves at Masterdisk NYC. Artwork and screenprinting handled by Three Bears Design’s Charlie Wagers and all hand-numbered (red: #401-500, green: #201-400, blue: #1-200). Sooo, as you can see there are three different colors to choose from, as well as a package deal for all three colors. Each vinyl color’s jacket corresponds with that color of vinyl (red vinyl = red jacket, etc.) We’ll have 100 copies of “Wild Cherry” (translucent red), 200 copies of “Blu-Rasberry” (translucent blue), and 200 copies of “Limeade” (yup, translucent green). Each copy has a hand screenprinted cover with glow in the dark ink! These are printed on thick stock French Paper with the vinyl inserted into a thick black paper inner sleeve. Stick all that into a sturdy polybag and you’ve got a little bundle of beauty =) Yup, no jivin’. Get you some or become an eBay hater later.
DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS.
Also check out the full lengths by both bands. The last song on Giants’ Old Stories is one of my favorite instrumental tracks ever. And there’s moments on BoS’ dogs that rival EITS and Caspian’s best moments and hooks.
