Dual FormA little while ago, I blogged about a new release from Leaving Records and Stones Throw Records called Dual Form, a cassette-only compilation of Leaving Records artists to kick off Stones Throw serving as a distributor for Leaving Records. The cassette is on sale now at various LA record stores including Amoeba Hollywood, and a few lucky buyers of the Dual Form cassette will get a golden ticket for an exclusive Leaving Records mixtape! The LA labels are throwing an all-cassette DJ night tonight to celebrate the release at The Virgil (4519 Santa Monica Blvd.), hosted by Leaving Records co-founder Matthewdavid and Dublab's Frosty. If you get the golden ticket, you can redeem it there. It starts at 9 p.m. and is free, though it's part of Dublab's Proton Drive, so donations are welcome. The event will be streamed live at Dublab.com.

He’s already released tracks such as “Nothin Finna Stop Me” as well from the upcoming The MOEna Lisa, due Nov. 6 from SWTBRDS.

 

Feeding PeopleFeeding People – “Island Universe”

Feeding People released a 7” of their sweet indie pop tune “Island Universe” last month, and now that song has gotten the remix treatment by Free the Robots featuring Phil Nisco. It’s the rare remix that completely reimagines the song and does so successfully — this time highlighting the song’s sci-fi potential, given that title, reminiscent of camp classic This Island Earth. Listen to it at LA Record. Both the original and remix are available to download at Amoeba.com.
