It’s been a big and fun few weeks for us in Big Whup. We showed you some pictures from our video session with Tony and Gabe, who have now posted “Yaay!” and “Trim” on their website. We’ve linked to the videos below so you can check them out. Thanks again to Tony and Gabe for their friendship and hard work.
We self-released a compilation, through our new Big Whup Industries imprint, at the Smell on Saturday and it was an awesome success! Called “What is Happening…,” the comp features “Yaay!” and “Trim” as well as twenty-one tracks from some of our favorite local and semi-local musicians. Last night Geoff dropped off some free copies of the comp at Pehrspace and Tribal Cafe, and soon it will be available from a vending machine at CalArts for the nominal price of a dollar. You can also just come find us out in the street (use the pictures on this website as a guide), introduce yourself, and ask us for one. We’ve got quite a few.
We’ve also had the pleasure of being included on a couple of other compilations that we didn’t curate ourselves! “Cover My Eyes” is track nine on Radio Free Silverlake’s Fall 2009 mix, and we’re stoked to be lined up with friends we love and admire, like the Happy Hollows and the Monolators. “Trim” has been included as the penultimate track on “Eargasms 6,” a compilation from Vertical House Records in Huntsville, AL that can be downloaded here. In addition to North Alabama heartthrobs like Thomas Function and the Pine Hill Haints, the comp also has a lot of hip and happening touring bands on it, including Times New Viking, Woods, and Jay Reatard. Thanks RFSL’s Joe Fielder and Vertical House’s Ashley and Andy Vaughn for choosing to include our music on their mixes!
