Dead Meadow's "Peel Sessions" resurfaces

A raw and heavy Dead Meadow performance for the BBC's Peel Sessions along with one previously unreleased song and two alternate versions of Dead Meadow classics cleverly titled "Peel Sessions" has just been reissued by Tekeli-Li Records  (and Cardinal Fuzz in Europe) in a limited edition on black vinyl and black & white swirl vinyl. Since the 2012 release on Prune Pendant Records now goes for three figures, Dead Meadow fans might want to grab this significantly cheaper alternative.

Recorded in 2000 at Fugazi’s recording space in Arlington, VA, this Dead Meadow recording notably marks the first time a Peel Session was taped outside the BBC studios. The 8-song album features the six tracks from the March 9, 2001 program, plus a demo of White Worm and an acoustic version Golden Cloud. Tracked out during the same period as 2001’s Howls From the Hills, the new release places a more energetic twist on Drifting Down Streams and Dusty Nothing as can be heard below. Act fast, the small pressing will likely sell out quick.
