Sunny Day Real Estate - Thief, Steal Me a Peach 7" (1993)
It's finally here! After a few years of searching for this 7", only to hear one song that I had on a mix tape years ago, all it took was a post about Sunny Day and a request and papstar comes through with the save.
This 7" is super out of print, it is the first recording that Jeremy plays and sings on, and even the cover art was damn hard to find. Song no. 8 is the same song that ended up on LP2, but it is an earlier version. Song no. 9 is the money shot. Jeremys vocals are alot more on the edge here, cracking and threatening to break as the band gets closer to their punk and hardcore roots than they would ever do on later albums.
Some people might find these songs ragged and under produced, but purists will love the unbridled angst that is apparent on these two songs. Personally, 9 is one of the best Sunny Day songs and even after not hearing it for almost a decade, I would still say its one of their best.
