Date added: 01/02/2012 Announcing... limited edition LP from Jad Fair + Hifiklub + kptmichigan!
Joyful Noise is very pleased to announce the release of Bird House - the new collaborative album from Jad Fair + Hifiklub + kptmichigan.
With "Bird House", the legendary Jad Fair has teamed up with prolific French artist Hifiklub and Germany's kptmichigan to produce some of his most artistically engaging music in years. Best known as the founding member of Half Japanese, and collaborator with a slew of artists including Teenage Fanclub, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, and Daniel Johnston - Jad Fair has firmly established his stature as a pioneer of lo-fi indie rock.
Unlike the traditionally simple, playful style of Half Japanese, the new LP features hypnotic, fluid musicianship alongside Jad Fair's psychologically imbalanced vocal style. The end result is a strangely listenable blend of atmospherically tempered experimentalism.
Released on January 24, "Bird House" is limited to a one-time pressing of just 300 hand-numbered 12" records. This single-sided LP features original Jad Fair artwork which is screen-printed directly on Side B of the record, and is packaged in a picture-disc sleeve. The first 45 copies are pressed on translucent gold vinyl with black ink, and 255 copies are pressed on translucent yellow vinyl with red ink.
