Baker Skateboards in partnership with Scion later this month will release the Baker Skateboards EP, "a free five-song release curated by the skateboarding team featuring new music from Earthless, Pell, Zig Zags, Denmark Vessey and The Goat & The Occasional Others." The collection becomes available January 26, but the new Earthless song, "End To End," is streaming and available for free download now over at Noisey, or right here:
According to Scion AV, the tracks are "a varied mix, featuring not only the new Earthless track (the San Diego outfit's first new music since 2013), but New Orleans rapper Pell, Los Angeles' Zig Zags whose music Pitchfork described as 'a potent dose of galloping, cartoonishly vicious rock'n'roll,' Detroit's rising hip hop star Denmark Vessey, whom NPR said is "as expressive of hip-hop's infinite potential," and The Goat and The Occasional Others, which includes Baker Skateboards' founder Andrew Reynolds and veteran skateboarders Shane Heyl, Kevin Long, Beagle One-ism as well as skateboard photographer Atiba Jefferson."
The songs came together loosely organized around the Scion x Baker Skateboards project, a road trip between the skate company and Scion, that "started off at the Buttonwillow Raceway in Buttonwillow, California, where [Baker Skateboards] met up with professional race car driver Ken Gushi. The crew showed what type of speed they could get on the vast expanses of asphalt, with or without an engine. Then they brought out the ramp so Baker boss Reynolds could go big over the bright yellow Scion TRD FR-S Project Car. Next they headed to San Francisco for a huge demo at the SoMa West Skate Park."
