Speedy Wunderground is a new label, created and curated by producer Dan Carey, knob-twiddler for such artists as Django Django, Yeasayer, Hot Chip, and Bat for Lashes. The label's aim is to record a series of 7" singles in sessions lasting no longer than one day (with no lunch breaks) and release the results in limited editions of 250, in the shortest possible time. At the end of the year a compilation album of these recordings will be made available.
If this first release is any indication of what's to come, Speedy Wunderground is a label to keep an eye on. 'I Go Out', an utterly inspired collaboration between Steve Mason, Emiliana Torrini and Toy, is nothing short of epic in it's duration and ambition - and all put together in one day. A seven minute sonic assault, as one review accurately described it.
