Just last month, Nathan Williams of Wavves announced the launch of Ghost Ramp Monthly, a subscription service from Ghost Ramp Records. For $35/month, subscribers of the service receive exclusive content from the label. Content includes vinyl, specially designed apparel, trading cards, and some special surprises to be announced.
The first installment of the January subscription was recently released, and it’s quite a grab. Lucky subscribers received a Wavves/Best Coast split 7”. The Best Coast side features a cover of Nirvana’s Dumb off In Utero. Bethany Cosentino has never been shy about her love of Nirvana, and her cover serves as a sincere homage to the gloomy original. Wavves included an original track themselves, “Dreams of Grandeur,” made with in the same surfy punk sound that we’ve come to know and love.
