Many moons ago, Sister City had the honor to release Arts & Entertainment’s EP of R. Stevie Moore covers, Just A Little Moore. The pressing is absolutely beautiful, and now the opportunity to own this record can be yours at a discount of Cal Worthington proportions. The price of the EP has been slashed from $9 to $5.50, plus the cost of shipping. Why would you pass this up? Treat yourself to a piece of Los Angeles music history, or at least something that might merit a mention in an unlikely 400+ page oral history of Manimal Vinyl.
Here’s the b-side from the upcoming R. Stevie Moore covers E.P. from Arts & Entertainment. Imagine the Isley Brothers with a guest appearance from Nels Cline. Then stop imagining such stupid shit and listen to the amazing song.
Join anyone who’s anyone (and who’s not committed to putting in quality work at the place of work on Tuesday morning) at the Silverlake Lounge on 7/11/11 to celebrate the release of the Sharks 7″. Thanks to David Greenwald at Rawkblog for sponsoring the evening. Click here for more details.
Hey, good buddies. It’s been a while. Here’s what’s going on in Sister City land.
(1) LA Font. The Sharks/Lipsmack 7″ drops on July 11, 2011, smack dab on the second night of the band’s residency at the Silverlake Lounge. More details to come regarding the record release party, but it goes without saying that the Silverlake Lounge will be the place to be on Monday nights in July. At the very least, it’s better than watching Family Guy reruns on TBS and hating yourself. For more details on what the band’s up to, stay tuned to this space and www.lafontband.com. Records will be available here, there, and LA’s few remaining record stores, and you can cop it digitally from iTunes, etc ., as well.
(2) Arts & Entertainment. The R. Stevie Moore EP – title to be announced – is mixed and mastered and headed to the presses. It is nothing short of stunning – Astrid, Evan, and their cast of thousands have created something that is meticulously detailed and truly inspiring. Here’s the exclusive tracklist for your consideration:

The release date’s yet-to-be determined (likely mid-May) but in the meantime, check out the cover art for LA Font’s latest. As you do, remember the important lesson we learned on Record Store Day: stores and record labels want you to buy their stuff.

LA Font: (L to R) Chrimbus Tree, Greg, Harlow, Danny, Jon
SCR’s happy to announce that it will be pressing and distributing a 7″, due for May 2011, featuring two live staples from Echo Park upstarts LA Font. The A-side is the Toadies-esque “Sharks” and the B-side, the nimble “Lipsmack.” SCR couldn’t be more excited about partnering with the LA Font dudes. The Pavement comparisons are accurate but, in my humble opinion, sorta tired. Unlike certain peers informed by the same source material, LA Font records loud and clear and isn’t afraid to make high-fidelity sounds – sharpen your stylus.
You can check out LA Font’s debut LP, The American Leagues, and upcoming live appearances here. Also, try to watch this video without getting tears in your eyes – hopefully we haven’t seen the last of Sid the Kid.
