Published Aug 28, 2008Long known as the home of Sufjan Stevens, record label Asthmatic Kitty has come into its own lately with quality releases from My Brightest Diamond, Castanets, Shapes & Sizes and many more. On top of their dedication to innovative music, the label is attentive to presenting their material in innovative ways. Case in point are the two free albums available from Asthmatic Kitty artists Grampall Jookabox and Chris Schlarb.
Theres no Radiohead-style donation box either. Fans can choose to stream the records or download the MP3s for free. The first is Rill Bruh, an EP from the experimental folkie leading up to his sophomore full-length due in November. The second is a hip-hop-heavy remix of Chris Schlarbs experimental Interoceans full-length. Featuring contributions from Jel, Ellul, Greg Davis and many others, the album promises to be full of clicky hip-hop goodness.
Both records can be found on the Asthmatic Kitty site.
