The Joy Formidable


Cradle b/w The Last Drop 2x7"

Try Harder WORK015, released 2009

The first three singles that the Joy Formidable released are all spectacular, and all make for powerful live performances. "Cradle" was the third of those singles. This one was a double 7" set, all on black vinyl. It came in in a gatefold sleeve, and was hand-numbered out of 500. The first disc featured "Cradle" and the "KYTE remix" of "Cradle", while disc 2 contained "The Last Drop" and "The Last Drop (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs-Iguanadon mix)." It is a fairly tough find, but does come up for sale from time to time, and the price has come down over time. I have seen it sell for as little as $20 and as much as $60, but the $20 end is more common now. There was also a promo CD version, containing all four tracks from the double 7".
