Just like the NSA, we’ve been monitoring every little step of Guillermo Scott Herren’s new Yellow Year label, eagerly awaiting the release of their first record. It turns out to be as wonderful as one would expect from either Prefuse 73 or Teebs, so we cannot but recommend picking up a copy. “Speak Soon (Volume One)“ is available now and you can choose between vinyl, CD and digital download. All of them are available directly from the label, Bleep, or your favourite record store!
The last time I heard a mixtape from Prefuse 73 was in January 2012, unless you count in that Sons of the Morning live set which is also older than a year. Before that, I remember one that came along The Only She Chapters in 2011 and another from 2009. It’s clear there aren’t too many available, so we’re excited about a new one for the latest XLR8R podcast, featuring music from some of our favourite records this year and some forthcoming music on his own Yellow Year imprint.
