Merge Records has announced it’s reissuing a pair of albums from North Carolina cult indie heroes Polvo. On February 28, Merge will release 1992’s Cor-Crane Secret and 1993’s Today’s Active Lifestyles, featuring “updated-but-familiar” artwork, and will be issued on blue and white vinyl (Cor-Crane) and red and mustard yellow vinyl (Today’s Active Lifestyles). The former features rare posters and ephemera as part of the package, while the latter includes previously unreleased photos.
Additionally, the two albums can be purchased together as a bundle, which also includes the 12-inch reissue of the band’s self-titled EP featuring early recordings, which was previously only available in the Merge subscription series, “Born Under a Good Sign.” Pre-order for that is here.
Watch the band’s video for “Vibracobra,” from Cor-Crane Secret, below.
