To herald the release of John Cale’s Extra Playful EP, Domino imprint Double Six are happy to share a new video for the EP track “Catastrofuk,” directed by his daughter, Eden Cale. In keeping with the Extra Playful spirit of the EP, the video sees him exploring outer space. The new world in which he finds himself appears inviting on the surface, but slowly, its darker elements reveal themselves and it becomes apparent that all is not quite as it seems.
The Extra Playful EP, currently available digitally and on 12”, will be issued on CD for the first time in North America as an indie retail Black Fridayexclusive on November 25. The very limited Black Friday CD of Extra Playful will feature two exclusive unreleased tracks: “Bluetooth Swings” and “The Hanging,” as well as a redesigned package.
“Its a great pleasure to know the indie market is alive and well – still kicking sand in the face of those corporate behemoths. Without the true believers of real music – our neighborhood indie music shops – so many would have simply missed out on some of the most ground-breaking music yesterday and now. Characteristic of most indie stores is they have limited stock of their hand-picked favorites which drives the buyer to other stores that would invariably have their own focus and style – now go forth and multiply!” – John Cale
