The members of Bay Area-based trio Cryptacize have already shared the stage with WHY?, and now they'll split a record with the Oakland-based band when Asthmatic Kitty releases the latest 7" in its Unusual Animal series.
Already known for its bizarre incarnation of folk-pop, Cryptacize will cover Steely Dan's "Peg" for the release, while WHY? will do a rendition Dylan's "As I Went Out one Morning." The 7" drops July 22 and will feature a West Indian Mantee on the cover.
Meanwhile, rather than return to the Bay Area and relax amid the 30-mile an hour winds we've been having here, Cryptacize will hit the road today, for another set of tour dates.
