Working Blue: an N2DS2W special edition featuring Toronto's catl.

 Purchase catl.'s new full-length record, Soon This Will All Be Gone, and you'll get 39 minutes of vintage blues filtered through 21st century Detroit and Toronto. But just like their albums are the pilot flame that ignites the band's scorching live shows, those 39 minutes represent a fraction of the sweat and tears, trials and tribulations that brought Soon This Will All Be Gone to fruition.

In conjunction with its release, we are pleased to bring you Working Blue: lifting the lid on catl.'s new album. Many thanks to catl. for generously allowing us to attend one of their sessions at Detroit's Ghetto Recorders last May, so that we could experience the creative process and share it with you.
