Chapin Sisters & Winter Flowers - 2007 - Split EP

(Manimal vinyl MANI 01)

Eight brand new songs from LA's most respected folk bands together on this very limited edition split picture disc with stunning artwork by Astrid Quay (Winter Flowers) and Abigail Chapin (The Chapin Sisters). Contains the Chapin Sisters KCRW hit "Let Me Go" and the extraordinary Winter Flowers on four mellotron and flute soaked classics that bring to mind bands like Fairport Convention, Incredible String Band and Devendra Banhart. The Chapin Sisters are the Abigail and Lily Chapin, nieces of legendary folk singer Harry Chapin ("Cats In the Cradle") with half-sister Jessica Craven (daughter of director Wes Craven). Winter Flowers are five young mystics who live in a communal environment in Echo Park, California. A soft musical oasis of guitars, flutes, mandolins, glockenspiels, harpsichords & soaring 3 part vocal harmonies. WF offer a space of fragile delights for the seeker of higher musical realms.

A beautiful picture disc LP split between Los Angeles' most inspiring folk bands--The Chapin Sisters and Winter Flowers. Eight new songs. Limited edition of 1,000 copies. 180-gram vinyl-only release.

Bio : The Chapin Sisters
Sisters, Abigail and Lily Chapin along with half-sister Jessica Craven have been singing together since childhood. They formed the group in the early 2000's with Lily assuming banjo and guitar duties along with her dazzling voice. Abigail plays the six string acoustic and electric and boasts the gorgeous campfire vocal, and the sophisticated sister, Jessica balances out the three part harmonies with her sultry Americana falsetto. They scored a minor hit in 2005 with an ethereal re-working of the Brittney Spear's hit, "Toxic". After touring the USA and recording several new songs for the debut release, The Chapin Sisters EP (River Bottom, 2005) the girls hit the studio with Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Devendra Banhart, Lavender Diamond) at the knobs. The results are the 12 inch LP picture disc split with LA collective, Winter Flowers on a special eight song feast, that featured the lovely college radio hit, "Let Me Go" (watch video). The Chapin Sisters are looking forward to the release of their debut LP on Plain Recordings this Winter '08.

3 Fire Song 3:50
4 Earth and Sky 7:28

Bio : Winter Flowers
Founded in the year 2000 by Christof Certik and Gavin Toler, Winter Flowers bring fourth a brand of heavy folk-rock not seen since the days of The Pentangle, Fairport Convention and Incredible String Band. Their debut CD Winter Flowers (Attack Nine/ Darla) was released in 2005 to critical acclaim in the USA and Europe alike. Their appeal has lead them to perform with bands as diverse as Devendra Banhart and Dead Meadow. They have since added many singers and musicians to their collective in recent years, such as vocalist Astrid Quay, bassist Nick Sapiro, keyboardist Sasha Smith, ex-Beachwood Sparks drummer Aaron Speark and folk-rock sensation, Mia Doi Todd. The 12 inch picture disc LP was recorded in the winter of 2007 and was the debut of this full band sound that has lead them to the recording of the Madonna classic, "Live to Tell" for the upcoming Madonna tribute on Manimal Vinyl, Through the Wilderness.
