Digital Leather drops digital album; Bloodcow’s fine art; Gramps gets the Love Drunk video treatment…
by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com
Having just received my vinyl copy of Digital Leather’s new album, All Faded, in the mail last week, along comes word that Digital Leather has released yet another collection of songs called Whack Jam via Bandcamp. Unlike All Faded, which is an all-band recording, there’s no indication who plays on this release. Is the 11-song collection a Shawn Foree bedroom project?
A bigger question is whether Whack Jam is going to be released on any other media — cassette, vinyl, CD — or if it’s download-only. Still trying to find out myself. In the meantime, you can download it right here for $8.
BTW, you can purchase your copy of All Faded at the FDH online store.

Speaking of vinyl arriving in the mail, how many of you also got a piece of original artwork with your copy of Bloodcow’s Crystals & Lasers album? Suitable for framing.

Indie band Gramps just got the Love Drunk treatment, which was probably easy to arrange since Gramps frontman Django Greenblatt-Seay runs Love Drunk. I believe this is the first time Django turned the camera on one of his own music projects. Do you think he gave himself preferential treatment? See for yourself.
Gramps celebrates its debut EP release tomorrow night at fabulous O’Leaver’s.
