Once more a pristine vinyl cut from a previously unreleased band. This is the debut single from 4 piece lo fi scuzzy pop outfit Trecco Beis, on limited edition hand numbered translucent blue vinyl 7" (limited edition of 500).

Only 250 will be sale for here and the rest via gigs / the band.

We discovered Trecco Beis on the recommendation of various members of the wonderful Y Niwl, purveyors of finest Welsh surf rock and backing band to no other than the ever advancing Gruff Rhys.

A four piece, they all arise from Swansea / Neath. They're all now in London, some of them are actors, others are erm....librarians. The first time we saw them live we utterly fell in love with them, a madcap mixture of 60's harmony, melody and Sonic Youth esque fuzz guitar. They're like Gorkys Zygotic Mynci if they borrowed their guitars from the Sonics. It's a bit like if the Boo Radleys (Giant Steps era) sang the Lily's Nanny in Manhattan......in Welsh accents.

This is their first single, and follows on from a number of home recorded demos. Hummingbird has such ability to knock a listener sideways, Green Man booked them after just one listen.

Hummingbird is an ode to beauty. Luke wont tell us who she was but its a wonderful mixture of Byrd's Harmonies and the Sonic's guitars. Sofia brings up the best psychedelic moments from Giant Steps, with slabs of Fender Jaguar Fuzziness. It sounds a bit like Big Leaves (we love big leaves). We guarantee you'll be hooked with one listen.

This single follows on from their appearances at Dim Swn, Focus Wales and Green Man festival in 2015. The band will be appearing at Focus Wales and Machynlleth comedy festival with more dates to follow. (And anywhere else if you fancy booking them!!)

The single follows the same artwork as previous releases, but this time will be supplied for a free download card. Includes unlimited streaming of PING003 : Trecco Beis : Hummingbird / Sofia via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

We just release one off singles, each time from a different band, each time only on 7", each time only in a hand numbered limited edition. The series will continue till we reach nine. Then we'll issue a compilation of them all for charity.

Clearly we don't sell Microwaves, we do like the Popty Ping phrase though.
