New local label Denmark Records, started by UNC-CH graduate and Vinyl Records creator Tripp Gobbel and NCSU graduate Logan Sayles, have just put out their first release, a split seven-inch between electro-soul duo ArnHao and the Flying Lotus-esqu Holygrailers. Entitled Denmark One, you can stream the seven-inch for free here and purchase a copy, including an expanded digital EP, here.
This past Friday on the Local Beat Russell Baggett of the recently revived Honored Guests was my honorary guest as we discussed the recent hiatus of the band and their comeback in recent months. The Honored Guests just recently released a free online EP via Vinyl Records which you can download here. In addition the band is currently finishing up recording it’s “newest” album, a project that began about 4 years ago, and it should hit the streets in the fall. Russell and I chatted about all of these things and more, while leaking some of the newest tracks from the upcoming full length. Take a listen below:
You can catch the Honored Guests June 26th at the Nightlight in Chapel Hill where they will be playing with local group Pros and Cons.
