2012, Manimal Vinyl

VINYL FORMAT. Jamaican influenced psych rock from San Francisco by ex-members of The Donkeys, Fruit Bats and The Anniversary. Sexy dub-a-delic rock steady... Paul Beahan, the man behind Manimal Vinyl, who has released records by Warpaint, Sister Crayon, Rainbow Arabia and papercranes, said of his most recent addition, "It started out as a dreary day in Los Angeles when I curiously received a cd-r from a band called Extra Classic. Having no expectations, I popped the disc in my player and within minutes the sun was shining and the smell of tropical coconuts, rum and ganja filled the air....Manimal will never be the same.." In order to capture the sonic quality of old Jamaican records, Extra Classic recorded the tracks of their forthcoming full length on 8-track tape, with vintage recording equipment from the 60's and 70's.

Extra Classic are Adrianne Verhoeven and Alex deLanda from Lawrence, KS, and are now based in San Francisco. Adrianne Verhoeven played keys and sang in The Anniversary from 1997-2003.

Alex deLanda is a songwriter/producer based out of San Francisco. Some of Alex's projects have included recording and producing The Donkeys' album, Living on the Other Side.
