Palmist: A Labor of Love

More to get excited about: FatCat Records, the Brighton, UK-based label, home to some of my favorite bands and artists (Hauschka, Animal Collective, Black Dice, Johann Johannsson, Sylvain Chauveau, to name a few), has announced the new Palmist imprint, “a project dedicated to releasing limited, vinyl-only runs of artists we love who are home-recorded or otherwise steeped in the DIY tradition.”

The first three releases will be 12” split singles, scheduled for US release on August 16th:
US Girls / Slim Twig
Bitches / Yuppies
Lotus Plaza / Odonis Odonis

These releases will come packaged in lovely, hand-stamped and numbered sleeves. You’ll want to hug them.

A labor of love? Yes.
