    Earlier this year Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World took part in the Phoenix Rock Lottery and formed a band called Wet Lab. They performed two originals and a cover at the show. They then released the two originals on a cassette tape for charity. You can stream one of the songs, “Lords of Hell,” below.

    Five Arizona musicians were matched together at a Rock Lottery in January 2015 and tasked with writing 3 songs and learning one cover song to perform later that same night. Featuring Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World, Chan Schulman of Harper and the Moths, Justin Weir of Celebration Guns, Mitch Wyatt of Pinner and Jason Roedl of Mergence, Wet Lab recorded 2 of these tracks and have now decided to share them on a cassette. That’s right, a cassette. Some would call it a “cassingle”.

    I love this sound. Seriously thought Jim released his solo record last year, but haven't heard anything but one other song. Did I miss something?

    My first post. Long time reader, first time poster. I check the site daily so figured I'd join, especially during the current blink tidal wave.

    God my brain is fried from work and finals. I totally read that title thinking it was going to be a recording Jim's wet dog somehow performing a song :seeno:

    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    This is actually better than most of the last album. Takes me back to the golden days.

    Both of these tunes are awesome. Love this sound and hearing Jim have this much fun (not that I don't think he still is in JEW).

    Give what you can.

    God these songs are awesome. Was hoping they'd be on Spotify but the closest thing is a band called Wet Labia.

    Edit: Like the true dumbass my father raised, I didn't read the article before posting, and it specifically said they won't be releasing it any other format ever. And since the article is from quite awhile ago, it would seem that they meant it. Congrats guys, you got me to buy my first cassette in 20 years.

    Holy shit. This is amazing. Hoping the new JEW record sounds this good.

    Wish there was a FLAC download of these songs somewhere, the proceeds of that could just as easy be donated to the charity.
