Our last look at Asobi Seksu came via “Me & Mary,” the first single from their third album Hush. In that vein, the New York dream-poppers are releasing a limited-edition 10″ that includes a slightly different version of Hush’s “Transparence” along with two unreleased tracks from the Hush sessions and a remix of the title track by Aa. For now, here’s Yuki Chikudate & Co. digging into the sunny (then icy, windy) “Transparence.” Hardcore indie-pop trivia buffs will note a new introduction.

The “Transparence” 10″ is out 8/25 via Polyvinyl. Then comes a tour:

    The actual vinyl is transparent! So very sexy.

  2. I dig the new intro! In the context of the album, maybe the old intro works, but I’m glad they switched it up for the single. This song just became a near perfect single.

    Cheers to Asobi Seksu, one of the best in the business right now.
