You thought Manipulator was the money album of the year? Think...AGAIN! 2014 ain’t done yet, and $ingle$ 2 is here. And this time, it’s for the money. Two times! $ingle$ 2 sweeps out the ashes of the breakneck days (and nights!!!!) of 2011–2013, and burns down the house all over again in the process.

$ingle$ 2 slinks low and flat-out sprints behind the scenes of the Goodbye BreadTwinsSleeper trilogy (no it isn’t!), collecting all the now-out-of-print sides that totally work amazingly well together when placed back-to-back-to-back as an album. The super-deadly “Spiders” single is spun again here in full, as well as the epically pop b-sides for “I Can’t Feel It,” “The Hill,” and “Would You Be My Love,” plus tracks for other righteous labels, like Permanent, Castleface and Famous Class, and covers of The Groundhogs, the Velvets and GG Allin! $ingle$ 2 is also a run through the SF 388 scene circa 2010–2013, with various local heroes like King Riff, Mike Donovan and Ty Segall himself at the board. Sure, there’s the knotting up of all the loose ends for the heavy-breathin’, AADin’ freak-fans — but $ingle$ 2 is really about the rush of getting a single for the a-side and then finding a total sunshine jewel on the b-side. $ingle$ 2 has been designed to withstand obsessive flipping, and it's yours to preorder now - or get it from a mom n' pop shop, November 18th!
