So, this thing bubbled up the other day: a Telethon remix of seven songs from Yip-Yip‘s new album:
And that was pretty cool. Local-on-local action is always sweet, but it’s even sweeter when it’s cross-genre local-on-local action.
And then Telethon’s mad genius Matt Kamm sent me an email making sure I had heard that, and dropped a few more bombs on me.
#1 Hits (1295-1802) is a 27-track compilation that brings together some of Telethon’s best moments over the project’s wildly disparate history.
A 24-track distillation of the best of the long-developing R. Stevie Moore tribute project. Of the nearly 200 tracks to submitted to the project (so far!), these were deemed to be the best, and right there alongside Ariel Pink is our very own Telethon. Sweet!
i also have 2 7″ releases coming out on Glowmobile. 1 due the end of this year with R. Stevie Moore’s cover of me and me of him.Another is completely new material…
And that’s your most recent edition of “What’s up with Matt Kamm and Telethon.” In the next edition, look forward to scintillating tales of t-topped gold sportscars and backstage kerfuffles.
