Album artwork for This Time of Night b/w Different Now by Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile

Suicide Squeeze celebrates Chastity Belt with the latest in its split 7" single series–a pair of covers by Friends of the Band and tourmates Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett. For this release, Kurt and Courtney each recorded a song from the band's third album, 2017's I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone, in their signature styles. Side K is Kurt's version of "This Time Of Night," on which he lovingly recreates the anxious interplay of Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund's guitars, stretching each note of the song's fraught vocal melody to its breaking point. Flip the record to Side C for Courtney's take on "Different Now," where she pulls the song from its Pacific Northwest haze, leaves it out to dry in the middle of the desert, and wrings something almost joyous from the original's ambiguity.
