Back in 2013, Canadian alt rock greats Sloan put out a 7" that was a tribute to members Chris Murphy and Patrick Pentland's '80s hardcore roots. It featured two originals -- "Jenny" and "It's In You, It's In Me" -- and came in a sleeve that was an homage to Minor Threat's Salad Days. It also came with a digital covers album where Sloan took on hardcore classics by 7Seconds, Descendents, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Minor Threat, Angry Samoans, and more. Those two releases are being combined on one vinyl album, titled This One's an Original, which is out now via Murderecords label.
For the artwork, Murphy says he "solicited 80’s photos from Jay, Patrick and Andrew and frequented my local corner store to use their ancient, era-appropriate toner photocopier. I am psyched to have these songs all together on record." You can read more of Chris' notes on the album, and listen to the two originals and check out the artwork and tracklist below.
