The Market Squares - Afternoon Tide 7"

Paul Messis has been a busy chap of late. As well as his own string of solo releases, and bass-playing duties for The Higher State (see post below), he's also found time to record this debut single by ad-hoc band, The Market Squares, for his own Market Square Records imprint.

Due for release on February 4th, this limited 7" (300 copies) features Paul alongside Calvin Laporte and Evan Smith, both members of Nashville psych-poppers The Sufis. "Afternoon Tide" and its B-side "Inside My Mind" are both Messis originals and were recorded in Nashville over a weekend last August. Both tracks have a charming spontaneous feel, with UK '60s beat era melding with US garage-punk. Head over to Paul's website for more info and details of how to order, or check out the A-side below.
