TRAVEL EXPOP SERIES – ‘Volume 1: FRANCE’ LP
Cankun, Holy Strays, Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, Voodoo Mount Sister. HITD 007 – Co-release with Ruralfaune – LP 12″ – 300 copies on white vinyl. Our next release will mark the launch of the first volume in a series of splits, which answers to the beguiling name of Travel Expop Series. The idea behind this series is simple: With each new edition we will bring a handful of experimental pop artists together with a label that we admire of the same nationality, on a single vinyl. So we begin with France, in co-production with the label Ruralfaune. This first volume-collage will, to our delight, draw together Cankun’s groovy funk-pop, the hallucinatory drone merry-go-round music of Holy Strays, the luminous, poetic dabblings of Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier and the cosmic equatorial hypnosis sounds of Voodoo Mount Sister. As for the artwork, Michael Sallit will mark his name on the list of collaborators. For this grand occasion, we are organising a launch party for Saturday 26th November at Espace B (in Paris’s 19th district). Click here for more info. Put it in your diaries!
