Friends Of Friends Readies Second Release (+ Party): Larytta, Bauchamp, Hecuba, more (MP3)
Innovative new local label Friends Of Friends Music has just announced its second EP release, and, well, it looks like the indie upstart is two for two. FOF's first release invited Santa Monica beatsmith Daedelus to curate, offering him the A side of a split EP and his choice of not only the B-side band, but the cover art illustrator(s) as well. Except that the "cover" was actually the front design for one of those newfangled music tees. Daedelus, in turn, brought in Jogger and artists Kozyndan, and the release, in its own right, brought in a handful of sweet remixers.
Now, the cycle begins again, with Swiss duo Larytta. Larytta's three new exclusive tracks will be complemented by three from the far lesser known Bauchamp, as well as graphic artist Tatiana Rihs, whose design appears to the right. The rec--err, shirt (plus a dropcard made of plantable seed paper) is due out September 15, a fact which shall be celebrated in grand form at the Echo on September 10.
Confirmed remixers for Friends Of Friends Volume 2 include The Chap, Lazer Sword, Round Table Knights, Otic Angst an L.A.'s own Hecuba. You can download Lazer Sword's remix of the Larytta song "You Got Nothing" via RCRD LBL, and find the Volume 2 track-listing after the flier.
