INCHES010: Pelican, James Pants, Foot Village, 60 Watt Kid, Meanest Man Contest (+ video!)

INCHES010 really is the best INCHES yet. Not a bum photo, with clean text on four (count ’em) super solid releases from L.A. -area artists and/or labels, AND a music video debut from Foot Village. Each piece of wax covered this week is short-form — one 12-inch, three sevens — so this week’s MP3s come from other sources. Still, it’s free music, and we all like that. Congrats to Fool’s Gold, who comes in at number two on Origami Vinyl’s sales chart.
