We Are Beat Happening

Will you just look at this. The holy grail for fans of Beat Happening and fans of underground lo-fi pop in general. Beat Happening were pioneers of the lo-fi and indie-pop movement and now you can get all six of their albums packaged up in a 7LP set with a 40 page book and liner notes from like minded soul Lois Maffeo. Remortgage your house. Do whatever you have to do (legally) to get this.

Calvin Johnson
What Was Me

Calvin Johnson is very cool. Not only does he run the seminal K Records but he had a wonderful career in Beat Happening, Halo Benders and Dub Narcotic Sound System. What Was Me was Johnson’s debut solo album, originally released in 2002. It looks like this will lead to a slew of archival releases from the K Records man.
