While tracking down a song I had just this evening listened to a couple of times on an old burned cd, the song was by The National Splits (mike downey of wolfie and mathlete), I came across the LA based indie label, Kittridge Records. With a roster bolstered by the likes of Wolfie, The Like Young, and of course The National Splits, this is another example of a small high quality record label operating under the radar. Now, when I come to a label site I always look for the link to audio/mp3/sounds/music, however they name their music page, if there is one -- and in Kittridge's case I was not disappointed. Under the heading, audio/video, I found their 2004 label sampler offered as free downloads.
Oh, yeah, the song I was looking for is this one, "The Audio Account", one helluva catchy, lo-fi, indie-pop song that wobbles in just the right places... you'll see, or hear what I mean...
