For a new band, Eyelids have quite a collective history with some of the most legendary indie songwriters ever. Not only were these longtime Portland, Oregon, collaborators the principal instrumentalists for Robert Pollard’s post-Guided By Voices band Boston Spaceships for over eight releases, but they have also worked in recent years with Stephen Malkmus, The Decemberists, Elliot Smith, Sam Coomes (Quasi), Black Prairie, Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Loch Lomand, Damien Jurado and Peter Buck. For Seagulls Into Submission, Eyelids turned inwards to their loves of New Zealand / Flying Nun guitar buzz, teenage L.A. Paisley Underground obsessions, haunts of early Athens, and all things beautiful, lopsided, and rock. The 7-inch is just a hint of what the band is working on for their upcoming full-length recorded with Adam Selzer (The Gossip, The Breeders, Red Fang) as well as their head-swirling live shows. The single includes a non-album B-side “I Can’t Be Told” plus a download featuring an exclusive live cover of Gun Club’s classic “Sex Beat” performed with Jerry A. (Poison Idea) and Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate). Limited edition of 500 copies.
