Ripped right from the bands press release!:

A long-running collaboration between brothers Pete and Nick Furgiuele, Gringo Star has worked previously with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Deerhunter), but for this new single—just as with acclaimed 2013 LP, Floating Out to See—the band took the DIY route, recording in Pete's basement home studio. Only this time, they went one further, handling every single instrument and vocal themselves. In typical, egalitarian Gringo Star fashion, Nick sings lead on A-side "Long Time Gone," while Pete handles vox on B-side "World of Spin."

"Working with Gringo Star has been on my mind since I met them at CMJ a few years ago," says Brian Hoekstra, who co-founded the label with Nicole LaRae of Grand Rapids rock club The Pyramid Scheme. "Gringo Star has a unique, adventurous psychedelic rock & roll sound that's infectious and timeless—these two sides could've come out at any point in the last 50 years. And now that dizzybird is releasing this 7-inch, we all get to dream together. Put out what you love, right? Seems like a good business model."
