Sub Pop Announces Avi Buffalo LP, IAMSOUND Kicks Off “LA Collection” 7-Inch Series

Two bits of exciting news from Los Angeles-area music-makers. The first pertains to Avi Buffalo, who I wrote about for the Weekly back in October (and whose first Sub Pop release made it into INCHES). The second comes from up-and-coming L.A. indie label IAMSOUND and involves a ton of great local artists including Nosaj Thing and Ryan Heffington’s We Are The World. Since I’m in a beastly mood, click the linx for the links.

Live Review: Manimal Festival Fights Through Bitter Cold to Triumph (Mostly)

Last weekend L.A. indie label Manimal Vinyl threw a big bash in the high desert — specifically at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, in the shadows of some bizarre rock piles (natural) and an authentic Western town (not so natural). Do read about it here (via LA Weekly), and just be glad that you can experience the freezing cold vicariously. Check the tags to see who played.

Fool's Gold was there with bells on.

INCHES009: Manimal Special ft. Hecuba, Chapin Sisters, Rainbow Arabia, Warpaint (Q&A, MP3s)

INCHES009 is the first installment of the column to focus entirely on one label. In this case, it’s local indie Manimal Vinyl, who are throwing a bacchanal in the desert this weekend at the always awesome Pappy And Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace. Inside this edition you’ll find an interview with Manimal founder Paul Beahan, and choice wax from Warpaint (featuring Shannyn Sossamon), Hecuba, Rainbow Arabia, and The Chapin Sister/Winter Flowers.

See you in the desert. Just be sure to leave the vinyl at home.
