While I don’t have much time this week to write new posts, there are some topics I really should mention here. Fortunately, writing these down also keeps me away from the real work!
So, this limited 10-inch is the first release from The Do-Over, actually a regular party in Los Angeles, hosted by Aloe Blacc and some of his Stones Throw associates. It features two new tracks, first the debut from House Shoes and another from Flying Lotus on the flipside.
As if the music wasn’t good enough, the 10-inch also comes in an extremely nice packaging: duo-finish jacket with artwork from Steven Harrington, kiss-cut sticker sheet to design your own sleeve and the record pressed on clear vinyl. You just have to see it for yourself.
A. House Shoes – The Makings
B. Flying Lotus – Sangria Spin Cycles
I’m not so sure about the availability, Stones Throw only lists the MP3s at the moment. According to Juno, it will be out on January 20, 2010. Oh, I forgot to mention the record is limited to 1000 pieces only, so you better stay en garde!
January 22, 2010 Do-Over Vol. 1 is now also available from Apple’s iTunes store
