INCHES002: More local revolutions w/ Mayer Hawthorne, Frankel, Vibes, Polyamorous, more

INCHES002 is up! The second installation continues on the same L.A.-centric path as the first, exploring five additional releases from five different local artists on five different nearby independent labels (with free MP3s). The releases are chosen with an eye toward both content and outward packaging.

This week’s gold medal-winner:

Mayer Hawthorne, Just Aint Gonna Work Out

Mayer Hawthorne, "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out"

Featured in INCHES002: Mayer Hawthorne (Stones Throw), Vibes (Not Not Fun), Frankel (Autumn Tone), The Polyamorous Affair (Manimal Vinyl), and Bipolar Bear (olFactory). Again, future installments will include reviews, interviews, guest bloggers, outings, and more.
