Jen Turrell 7 inch series
I got these a while ago and just was amazed by the number of bands and the concept behind this series. They are always great to throw on and find something new, a lot of bands I've heard of but haven't spent any time with. Plus they wrote "Brooklyn=Fort Awesome!" on the package, which I will spraypaint all over the bridges of brooklyn. thanks. Get them all here. Collect all 5!
From a radio station 7 inch show"
"Between 1999-2001, folk-pop diva (and sometime Boyracer member) Jen Turrell hosted a series of mostly acoustic shows at her house in Phildelphia. Dozens of artists appeared and were recorded live in performance. Evidently some of them also laid down studio tracks there at the house. Several 7″ comps of those live/studio recordings have been released, and there has also been a full-length CD overview of the series. This is the second of those 7″ comps, and it features one short track each by The Softies, Mac Dare, Park, The Bright Lights, the Microphones, and Dear Nora. My guess is that these particular tracks are from the studio material, but I could be wrong about that. What we get here is quiet pop music in various styles, and it’s a lot of fun."
