75 Dollar Bill -- Wooden Bag finally back in print on vinyl!!

Formed in 2012, 75 Dollar Bill draw from various sources from around the world and across disciplines — everything from Mauritanian guitar to raw minimalism and blown-out urban blues — yet the New York City instrumental duo’s music sounds like nothing you’ve heard before. Originally released in January of 2015, their limited vinyl debut, Wooden Bag, followed various cassette and digital EPs, and quickly sold out.

In 2016 the group released their critically acclaimed second album, WOOD/METAL/PLASTIC/PATTERN/RHYTHM/ROCK, which fleshed out the band's sound with ensemble arrangements for strings and horns; Wooden Bag captures the rawness and intensity of the duo formation and hews closer to their incendiary live sound. Now back in print from new lacquers cut at Chicago Mastering and manufactured at Memphis Record Pressing, this re-release sounds and looks fantastic. A must-have for fans both old and new, the LP comes packaged in a custom “disco sleeve,” which reproduces the original’s hand-stamped art, and includes a download card.
