The Do-Over strikes again! For the third installment of their limited edition 10" series The Do-Over has recruited graphic designer Matt Goldman (MFG) to come up with an absolutely stunning 3D sleeve that features a red and blue acetate sheet that "decodes" the graphics on both sides. If that wasn't enough, the record also features a custom printed inner sleeve and is pressed on speckled purple vinyl. Seriously this thing is so dope and I haven't even started on the music yet! If you copped the previous (now sold out releases) Do-Over releases, you already know to expect that heat, and heat is what vol. 3 delivers in a major way via Great Weekend and Noelle Scaggs. Great Weekend (aka The Twilight Tone aka YNOT from the first three Common albums) brings a killer disco soul vibe on "Lets Do It Again, with Noelle Scaggs rocking a modern Grace Jones style on the flip with "Cherry Pie." Limited to 1000 copies worldwide, don't sleep! Recommended.
