Baltimore’s Friends Records is run by my bud Brett Yale. Brett’s a serious music nut - passionate to a fault - and puts all his time and money into his excellently curated label. Last week he dropped news of his annual compliation - one that includes new and old tracks from favorits Celebration, Future Islands, Microkingdom, Dan Deacon, Secret Mountains, Oxes, Co La, Flock of Dimes, Dustin Wong & Molly Siegel, Soft Cat, Moss of Aura, Holy Ghost Party, and a lot more. You’re not going to want to miss it.
This is one of the new ones - a brand new burner from these shredders who brought you their excellent Strange Cultures LP late last year. They’re on Tumblr here.
Now, don’t be shy - go pick up this ‘quadruple-sided’ digital wonder, and free, here on Thanksgiving Day. Brett tells me he’s going to drop a few ltd cassette versions of it, too, so get those before they’re gone!
