Sharon Van Etten - I'm Giving Up On You
We're super excited about the release of I'm Giving Up On You. After her critically acclaimed debut Because I Was In Love, Sharon Van Etten has been hard at work on various projects - singing on The Antlers album Hospice, performing at Pitchfork Music Festival, and collaborating live with the likes of Bon Iver and The National. On top of all of this, along with recording her sophmore album Epic (to be released Oct. 5th on Ba Da Bing), Sharon found time to record 2 exclusive songs for the I'm Giving Up On You 7". This one is limited to 500 copies on black vinyl + MP3. Get it while you can!
Deerhoof / Physical Forms - Hoofdriver
Another one we're SUPER excited for! This 7" spawned from the mind of Regan Farquhar, better known as Busdriver (LA-based MC who has released several albums on ANTI-). Side A of Hoofdriver features Farquhar singing over a Deerhoof instrumental track. Side B features Farquhar's latest project, Physical Forms, which features members of The Mae Shi. Hoofdriver is the first of a possible series of Deerhoof 7"s featuring guest vocalists singing self-composed lyrics and new vocal melodies over original Deerhoof compositions. This one comes on yellow vinyl + MP3 and is limited to 1000 copies.
