Jay Reatard has apparently never heard that story about the Tortoise and the Hare. It was only a week ago that the garage-punk released his last effort from his Matador singles series and he’s already announced the next.
Reatard’s fifth release in the series contains three brand new tracks: “Trapped Here,” “Hiding Hole” and “DOA.” If you’re lucky enough to nab one of these ultra limited babies you can be enjoying the single as soon as August 19th. A fan of limited engagements, Reatard also has a few upcoming dates. Tour info and single mp3 after the jump
