Cold War Kids release free digital EP
Cold War Kids have announced the release of a free digital EP.

'Mulberry Street' is a rare, out-of-print EP that features six songs recorded prior to their latest album 'Robbers & Cowards'. The band said that they are making it available for free as a 'thank you' to their fans.

"Cold War Kids recorded three, six-song EPs before releasing 'Robbers & Cowards'," frontman Nathan Willett said in a statement. "The first of the three EPs is called 'Mulberry Street'. It was recorded in a day in M Wignall's garage/studio for some design job favors from (bassist Matt) Maust and sixty bucks."

"In between takes, Wignall would play an album over the speakers, like Iggy Pop's 'Lust For Life' or Neil Young's 'After the Gold Rush', and go on long rants, pointing out sounds and talking about how good these musicians were and how we would be lucky if in ten years we could play a song anywhere near this good. We thought 'Who cares! We just want to record our songs for us!' Then he showed us how to record vocals while he went to mow the lawn."

The EP is available at Coldwarkids.rcrdlbl.com.
