Jason Simon - Hindsight 2020 LP PIAPTK - 318
Jason Simon is a diverse and prolific artist. Not only the frontman for long running stoner rock three piece Dead Meadow, he also records solo albums and collaborative records (including with PIAPTK alum Trans Van Santos (OId Mexico) under pseudonyms like Old Testament, The Blasted Heath, and The Red Out.
Hindsight 2020 has been LONG in the works. We started working on releasing this in early 2021, when 2020 was barely hindsight. But, the great vinyl bottleneck hit us hard and kept this in limbo for a hot minute.
But now it's here! Limited to 250 Copies on "Pressman's Choice", each one a unique swirl or splatter handmixed by the press operators at Palomino Records, and 100 Black Vinyl LPs. Maybe we will repress the black, and maybe we won't. Who knows? Def not repressing the Pressman's Choice, though.

Hindsight 2020, a loose collection of five cover tunes and three originals, was recorded at home in the Spring and early summer of the 2020 lockdown, when so many of us were suddenly gifted an inordinate amount of free time. Tours disappeared overnight and deadlines vanished. One could wake and spend the day following whatever whim drifted across the mind. There was no initial intention of these songs coming together for a release like this. I began recording each tune because it seemed a good way to spend the day and this collection a result of months of days similarly spent. It felt right to place them together as a testament of sorts. Though the instrumentation, style, and even the players vary from song to song, they somehow all partake in those strange days.
