Taproot - Blue-Sky Research (RSDBF23)
Record Store Day Black Friday Exclusive
Limited to 1100
Featuring three co-writes by Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and guitar guests like Stephen Carpenter of the Deftones and Jonah Matranga of Far and Onelinedrawing, Taproot's Blue-Sky Research tapped a more melodic vein than its predecessors and sold well in 2005 on the strength of such singles as "Calling" and "Birthday." It proved to be their last album for Atlantic, though, which probably explains why it has never seen a vinyl release. Our reissue comes with an inner sleeve housing a (natch) "blue sky" vinyl pressing limited to 1500 copies worldwide.
