The Kurt Baker Combo "Give It Up" Pre-Sale Starts Tomorrow, October 2, 12 Noon EST.

Starting tomorrow, you can pre-order the new Kurt Baker Combo 45 coming out on Hidden Volume Records.

Hidden Volume says: "The Man From Maine in Spain is back again! Hot on the heels of his latest full-length "Play It Cool" (Rum Bar Records), Hidden Volume Records is releasing the double A-side single "Give It Up b/w "Motion Devotion" in late November. But for those of you who are hip to the scene, you can pre-order this slab tomorrow at 12pm noon EST. First 100 orders will be on electric blue wax and ship with an exclusive Kurt Baker Combo patch and you get an immediate digital download of the A-side. Once the physical single has reached the Hi-Vo factory floor, we will ship these (with patch) out. This is limited to 300 total copies (100 electric blue, 200 black vinyl) and will not be repressed. First come, first serve."

Go here tomorrow for the pre-order.

What more can we add? Kurt Baker is pretty much taking over the world right now so we'd advise NOT sleeping on this! You really oughta be one of the 300 lucky people who get to grab this one - hell, how about one of the lucky 100 who get it on electric blue vinyl?

Here's a track from his new album that came out last month. This guy even makes Mondays sound fun. Color us impressed.
