Published Feb 06, 2014Australia's travelling Laneway Festival has apparently united bands both on- and offstage, with news that tourmates Earl Sweatshirt, King Krule, and members of Jagwar Ma and post-punk quartet Warpaint hit up a Down Under studio together to take part in an "epic 12-hour all-night recording session."
While details are slim, Australia's Faster Louder [via Consequence of Sound] reports that the makeshift supergroup entered producer Jonti Danilewitz's (Mark Ronson, Santigold) studio in Sydney earlier this week to lay down some tracks.
A Facebook post from management company Astral People confirms that Earl, King Krule's Archy Marshall, Warpaint's Theresa Wayman and Stella Mozgawa, and Jono Ma of Jagwar Ma took part in the session. You can see some photos taken in the studio up above.
Aside from them all appearing at the Laneway Festival together, there are additional ties between the acts. Drummer Mozgawa had appeared on Jagwar Ma's 2013 debut LP Howlin', while Ma returned the favour by appearing on Warpaint's "Biggie," from their recently released self-titled sophomore set.
Sweatshirt, meanwhile, told Clash Music that he and King Krule had collaborated on new music, with Marshall putting vocals atop a Sweatshirt beat and the pair making another beat together, but those recordings have yet to be released.
It's unclear if and when this latest group collaboration will surface anytime soon.
