Chicago-based rock duo Local H will release their first covers collection, Local H's Awesome Mix Tape #1, on October 19 via G&P. It’s also a literal mix tape, as the EP will be released digitally, on CD and as a limited-edition cassette in honor of the format from which the album takes its name. Cassettes? In 2010? I bet the download generation has no idea what a cassette looks like up close, nor do they own a tape player with which to play it! I think it is a brilliant idea, however. Mix tapes were a wonderful signifier of a generation and a beautiful way to share songs, and I think it's incredible that Local H are introducing cassettes to kids who probably have no experience with them. It's such a classic, cute and vintage move on the band's part. Love it! LOVE!
Local H will cover everyone from TV on the Radio to Concrete Blonde to Jesus Lizard to Pink Floyd. The track listing is below.
01. Wolf Like Me (TV On The Radio)
02. Joey (Concrete Blonde)
03. Puss (The Jesus Lizard)
04. Spiderbite (Winnebago Deal)
05. Blood Stains (Agent Orange)
06. Time (Pink Floyd)
07. For Lovers (Wolfman)
