Stream I Can’t Give You Life The Want compilation in full


After months of delays, finished copies of our US vinyl-only compilation, I Can’t Give You The Life You Want, finally landed the week before last. We’ve sold out of our stash on pre-order, but copies are still available from Mount Analog (last time we checked). The comp features exclusive tracks from the likes of Cut Hands, Secret Boyfriend, Bremen, Dalhous, Tropic of Cancer and Exploring Jezebel, and is currently available to stream in its entirety over at Spin, where you can also read an interview with the janitor about the first five years of Blackest Ever Black’s life.


I Can’t Give You The Life You Want


I Can’t Give You The Life You Want is a new, vinyl-only US compilation from Blackest Ever Black.

Exclusively manufactured and distributed by LA’s Mount Analog record store, in a strictly limited edition of 500, it features new and previously unreleased material from Tropic of Cancer, Bremen, Cut Hands, Dalhous, Tarcar, Exploring Jezebel, Barnett + Coloccia, Secret Boyfriend, Tarquin Manek, 500 Stamps and Infrastructure Zero.

Listen to Tarcar’s contribution, ‘Eija’, here.

It will be released in the US in early June. All customers pre-ordering/buying from Mount Analog will receive a free Blackest Ever Black mixtape entitled Truth Or Dare In North America with their record. A handful of copies (without the mixtape) are available to pre-order direct from Blackest Ever Black.
