"Portland's hometown heroes Atole join Community Library with their 7" single debut, "Strike Zone." This single is a perfect slice of Atole's intense and wonderful contradiction: tightly wound uptempo synth punk subverted by founder Manny Reyes' spazzified bilingual exclamations. The band has been having tremendous momentum as Portland sound/scene/dance makers, and this single is a perfect snapshot of their live intensity and future direction. This release comes in anticipation of a full length album on fellow traveler label Audio Dregs. This 7" release is limited to 300 copies and comes in printed, hand-assembled sleeves that feature POP UP artwork! A drop card entitles you to one free download of the songs on the single, "Strike Zone" and "Dirty Bird." Get them while they last! This record captures Atole at the height of their powers."
